No, because I know there is no such thing.

if you have access to the nut, you can always just grind it off...

Mark,
Make sure your new shocks come with new shields before you destroy the old ones. I think I remember having to re-use these.

Thanks to all who chimed in. The vice grips on the rod worked fine. I had also sprayed some PB Blaster on the nuts in advance. I was prepared to grind the nuts off, if necessary, but I'm glad it didn't come to that, as I imagine it would have made a mess in my trunk.
