Uhmmm David...

Greens, spinach, Wheaties.....a longer breaker bar.

Sometimes them ol bolts just get a tad stubborn. A shot of penetrating oil and an over night sit, should help on the steering damper bolts. As for the oil drain plug, be sure to replace that copper washer at every oil change. If you don't, or forget to install the washer, you stand a good chance of having the drain plug sieze to the pan. Try using a 6 point socket (to minimized the chance of rounding the head) and a long breaker, if that doesn't work you may have to use a little heat.
