Doing the bodylift, NEED HELP QUICK!!

Hey guys can you direct me to the thread Redneckstone put up about Instructions on how to put on a bodylift? I can't get the front cab mount bolts off we got the nut off but can't get the bolt off. I also have questions on the steering column and how to work with that.

Any info or help would be great!

trust me its quicker not to deal with the bolt and just cut the head off..use a grinder or a nice dremel and it'll save you alot of time

your threads into your body bushing is rusted trying to bang it out wont do you any good, once you cut the head off take the threaded bolt and soak it in pbblaster and put it in a vice and head it up for a while then take some vice grips and spin the bolts out of the bushing
