Working on a '55 210. Need advice on best way to remove and install the trunk torsion rods. I got one off by sliding a socket and long extension over the end but, that was kinda scary as there is some pretty serious tension. Open to better ideas.

I just used a 3/8 deep socket and a 10" extension and removed both rods. Just make sure the socket goes on the rod, all the way to the bend. Support the trunk, if it's still bolted to the hinges.

That is pretty much what I did. Guess, it is as good as it gets!
