    Reach around the frame and stick a crescent or box end wrench on the nut. First loosen the botl enough so it spins a little, if possible. Make sure the crescent rests again the frams so when you are loosening it, it is touching the inside of the framerail. Then loosen the bolt fro mthe outside. Hopefully i explained this well, it worked for me...BTW, I took those splash guard things off, that may have helped too.

    getting the nut off was not the problem. The whole bolt though will not come out. We have tried burning the bushings, hammering. Any suggestions?
