    patience and persistance works for me/forums/images/icons/smile.gif along with a BFH, WD40, vicegrips, hacksaw, long punch.

    torch or grind the bolts off. Then cut out the bushings and get newones from the spring shop.
    I know but you will apprecieate it in the long run. Same deal with most u-bolts...

    PBlaster and Liquid Wench work better as a penetrating oil than WD40. Just my experience.

    Aero-Krol is an awesome penetrating oil. An air hammer with a round bit is less work than a hammer and punch. Lenox are the best saw-z-all blades, expensive but worth it.
