Today I attempted the simple process of replacing my shocks. No problem except on one corner (driver's front) where I could not get the bolt out from the bracket at the axle. I have front duals, so I popped the outer shock off, but the spacer was rusted to the bolt which was rusted to the bracket. So far I've torched the thing, soaked it with WD-40 and pounded the heck out of it with a BFH. I've attempted to rotate the bolt with a breaker bar and even put a wrench on it and jacked under it - all to no avail. Finally I got a cutoff wheel and cut both sides of the bolt off so it's flush with the bracket on both sides! I still can't hammer the remaining bit of bolt through. Looking at the sides of the bracket, it looks almost like continuous metal with just a little circle of rust outlining the bolt. Any suggestions how to get this out? I tried drilling, but the hardened steel refuses to give up any more than a little dimple (cobalt bit). Man, I'm stumped. My next thing that I can think of is to run the cutoff wheel up beside the shock on both sides. I'm not sure if the (now melted) shock bushing will gum up the wheel though. Gotta love the rust belt!
