    I want to soak these things for a few days in advance of trying to remove them. I realize that I dont't even understand the basic of what the different spay lubes are for. For instance; WD-40 vs. light penetrating oil. What should I use?

    I've had good experiences with both, PB Blaster and Kroil. You can't go wrong.

    just remember to put some anti-seize on them before you put new ones in. will help the next time you have to or want to remove them.

    I always use AeroKroil. I've named it my "Can of Majic" because it works so well.

    From their website






    Has anyone ever used PB Blaster and Kroil and thought the PB was better? Most guys that swear by PB have never used Kroil.

    Whadda ya mean, kidding? I use those snake oil sprays to keep the bugs away. I have 4 torch sets, and that's what works. I believe the oils are good for bolts that are already somewhat loose. Cherry red, spray water bottle to "shock", then unscrew like butter, with a little slurpy to chase rust... Check my new body mount thread...
