    Ok guys, got a little problem while trying to put on a 3 in body lift on my 89 k5. Every thing was going so so (which i knew then i was bound to run into a problem), got all body bolts out out of front fine, started on back and problems started, first set were spot welded on top in the bed, which may be standard, but was a time getting bolts out, but on the rear two the nuts are flush up against the frame at the top and getting a socket around them has not worked out for me. has anybody else ran into this problem or have a solution?
