I've been trying to get this bolt off for sometime now.. i got the other side off no problem and i've tried everything, torch, PB blaster, Air rachet gun... It'll turn and everything, it just won't come out, i've smacked at the thing so hard for so long .... any ideas?

try an impact gun and a prybar using the prybar to push againist the blot while hitting it with the impact gun along with some kind of lube (ex. wd-40 or some other stuff)

Yes, only way that worked for me. Too bad mine was x 8 :madjerk:

Make sure you get a decent diameter cutoff wheel so you can actually reach to cut all the way thru.

I vote big cutoff wheel as well. I'm guessing the bolt is seized to the metal sleeve part of the bushing, so they just spin together when you try to turn it.

i say that too. i did that once...i just took apart the whole craddle on the parts car...took it to the shop and torched it till the brackets melted. forget banging it. it'll never come out that way. cut off wheel is your best way right now.

Is that bolt for the alignment ??? If it is it might have an oval part on the center of the bolt that is hitting agains the bracket.

Yeah, i went and bought a new blade for my sawzall and I cut it out no problem. I had to cut the little black retainer things around the bolt off....not sure if those are really serious.... I've got it all put back together now and now my wheel touches my caliper or something, need to look into it tonight.... not sure what was touching but when i turn the wheel it grinds on something and has alot of friction.....
