    I am putting on a lift, and noticed that I cannot get the front left forward bolt off the truck. I'll cut it off tomorrow, but is there anything special about those bolts? They look like grade 8, 5.5 inch long, 9/16 barrel fine threads. Am I missing anything like they are super special heat treated or annealed or anything like that? Thanks for the help. A loss of that bolt would be muy mal I think.
