I am replacing my 95 SLS air ride supsension with passive struts from Strutmasters. I am having trouble getting the top strut nut off. I have tried 1/4 (too small) and 5/16 hex (too large) keys but neither seem to fit right. Does anyone know the key size for this hex key? is it a 9/32 key?

I have stripped one side and before I go to the next, maybe I need a specific key size. Also, anyone know of a good way to get the nut off the side that I stripped? I can't seem to keep the strut rod from spinning.

Yes, I tried 7mm and 8mm, that is what stripped the hex. Cadillac Tech posted an answer on the suspension forum that I should use a Torx 50, which I did, and that did the job.
