Icon5 Body bolt problems

I going to install a 3'' PA body lift on my 2001 and I can't get the body bolts out. The lower bushings just spin. I put wd40 on them but it's not helping. could someone teach me the trick for removing these. Thanks in advance.

you need heat map gas torch works great heat them till there good and hottt and you smell burning rubber if there still spinning have a buddy hold them on the bottom with a big *** pair of channel locks another thing i found out when i did mine was a vice grip style filter wrench will also work and you dont have to have a buddy to hold it

but heat is the biggest thing ford uses some strong *** lock tight on the bolts and the heat melts it

also you wont need heat for the bed just the cab and coresupport

Yes heat works best, also on my buddys we had a MASSIVE pipe wrench holding the top of it.
