Front Strut Cartridge Replacement

Checy Lumina 97 3.1L
Apparently, there is a special tool for this job. Accroding to the internet posts, AutoZone lends such a tool, but my local AZ said no.

Is this something I can replace with wrenches and so on? I have a 15/16 recessed wrench that holds the nut. I need a tool to hold the stem. I would appreciate your advice. Thanks.

I revisited AZ and got the tools.
Has anyone used the tool to remove strut cartridge from a GM vehicle?

I have on the older models. I don;t know if 97 is the same as 96 but Autozone has this repair guide for up to 96 lumina

Thanks for the reply. I finally gave up and used an air imparct wrench. It worked well.
