remember to remove the nut on top...
then it should just buzz right on outta there. the 4 lifts i've done, they buzzed right out with ease...using an air impact of course. once the bolts out, i take the rubber off the threaded end, then throw it on the vise and take a hacksaw to the mount and cut off the threaded portion of the mount. IF the new bolts were fullythreaded, you wouldn't need to do this step...but...they aren't fully threaded, so you must either thread the bolts all the way, or just drill the threads out or cut the threads off.
