So I bought some lock lugs from NAISSO sometime last year and when I tried to jack her up to do suspension work, it seems I have misplaced my lug key... any ideas?

I know I know, keep it in the glove box... well for quite some time I didnt have a glove box... just a seat, an upper dash and a steering wheel

Most tire shops have a special set of impact sockets for removing those lugs. The sockets are a left hand sharp spiral inside. They are pounded on with a hammer and the impact wrench continues to wind them on to the lug until they have enough grip to loosen the lug. Guess what your lugs look like when they are done, but at least they're off.

You can try to hammer on a socket that fits tight. Thats what i had to do. I think the 18mm deep socket worked the best.
