Mine were like that too the first time taking them out. The torque bits that I have are fitted inside a 1/2" drive sockets, so they can be used with socket wrenches. With these it's easier to get leverage on them to CAREFULLY break them loose.Just out of couriosity.... I tried to get those bolts out and mine were like welded in or something because I used just about everything I had to try and break them loose. Any ideas on how to get them out easier????
