    Cut the bolts, get new ones. A 1/8" thick cut off wheel on a grinder works really good for this.

    That is actually only the beginning of the fun...wait until you have to get the remains out of the spring eye. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Agreed....Lots of fun, NOT.

    The bushing sleeve has attached itself to the bolt, preventing you from just knocking it out with BFH.

    If you can get the nut off,cut the head off the bolt,and stack some washers under the nut,put it back on and tighten it--impact wrench works the best for this.Then you can remove the nut and add more washers.This usually pulls the bolt out of the spring bushing.Sometimes the nut is facing the frame and you have to use regular wrenches /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif-if all else fails you can cut the bolt with a sawsall on both sides of the bushing,or a cutoff wheel as already suggested,but the remains of the bolt will have to be removed in a press.I've been there--and know how much it sucks! /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    I had this problem too, just take a long wrench and angle it as much as posable to create a load so it cant spin. This has worked for me on three peoples trucks so far /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I think that diesel4me has the best idea.
