How do i get the large bolt that holds the sway bar to the leafspring off?
If it's being stubborn use a breaker bar.If you don't have a breaker bar slide a piece of pipe over the handle of the socket so it extends the handle and gives you better leverage.
try spraying with some penatrating oil as well(WD40).
man...theres really no room for a breaker bar......and they do turn just like anyother bolt right?
Take the tire off.Lot's of room then.
Ya,turn it counter clockwise to loosen it.
I used a 2 foot breaker bar when I undid mine.
well....i'm not talking about the leaf spring bolts..the sway bar bolt is vertical so the cheater bar would be hitting the under carage.
Yeah, they turn just like any other bolt. Just spray a lot of pb blaster on it and keep going at it. If you have access to an impact wrench, they seem to work well in that situation. I know there is very little room, but when I took mine off I had to use a piece of pipe over the end of the wratchet. It would only turn one or two clicks every time, but at least it worked. Just keep giving it hell.
Are you talking about the drivers side bolt?
It doesn't matter really,there's still room for a wrench.Like posted above,it may only be able to turn it a click or two at a time but you can still get it.
both passanger and driverside.
try putting some heat on it
awsome guys.. POPED right off..Thanks for all the help.
