Help! Fox Float 100 RLC

I can not remove the lower nut on the air spring side of my Float 100rlc I am trying to service this this thing. The nut just spins, I have the top caps removed and the RLC side removed. Any tricks? Thanks.

I know exactly what you're experiencing, having had the same problem in the shop with servicing fox forks. What I found works is to let the air out of the chamber, unscrew the top cap, and lean the piston to the side as far as you can, so the piston sits at an angle. Now hold the piston there while you unscrew. I've found this to be more of a problem on reassembly, BTW.
