Angry Losi 8 truggy shock screw stuck in A arm

Hi-
I am trying to remove my front shocks and BOTH tiny screw that hold the eyelets on the A arms will not come out. They just spin in place.
I guess I will have to cut the arms to get the shocks off and buy new ones
Is there any way to prevent the screws from getting stuck again? I have never had this happen before.

First pic - these screws? Easy to remove if they’re stripped. Allen Wrench in the screw and push on the other end of the screw through the hole opposite the screw. See my photos.

Yes that is the screw. Thanks for the photos. I tried pushing while turning the screw but it seems stuck fast.
I am selling the truggy to someone who knows about the stuck screw. He is a good at fixing things.

That’s a bummer. It just takes a little finesse to get it out. The 8T is a really nice machine. I like mine.
