    thanks for all the reply's guys. finally got my valance replaced.

      Big thank you on this... Had the exact same problem, could have sworn the nut in the shock had broken free the way it felt. Ended up, some prying popped the bolt right out. Was about to rip the bumper cover off and god knows what else

      Thank you!
