I am confused, the same technique used on the body mounts? In this case the whole thing spins so am wondering how the heat will help.


Thanks alot for helping me out bro

Ok just so I don't have to explain. Get you some wd 40 and soak the bolt soak the inside of the sleeve and let it sit for a few mins, then for the passenger side put the pipe wrench facing the engine. Try to get the handle behing your upper control arm so you can focus on holding the wratchet. Fyi it will slip, so put one hand on the head of the wratchet and then go to town. Repeat steps for driver side

Like 20 hours or so but not with all the proper equipment. I still need to install the bumpers. I changed the pitman arm as well since i was already there. I am kind of having a lil bit of trouble fitting the front bumper into the brackets.
