Petrol90 and clean the threads up and use anti-seize when installing. Buy a GOOD T-55 socket.

The best ones are the two-piece design, basically a torx bit epoxied/pressed into a socket. If you look at AutoZone, they got some one-piece solid forged ones that are really, really soft, and will slowly twist, until they twist off.
