Depends on what you are taking apart. I always like to break things loose with a breaker bar, then use the impact after that. If you have any exposed threads, clean them with a wire brush so that it is easier to remove the nuts. Use plenty of penetrating oil. If you hit resistance with the impact gun, stop, spray on some more penetrating oil, then tighten the fastener back down and repeat as necessary until you get it all apart.
