Well I was going to try and help, but I guess the 97 is different. On my 2005 the bolts just pulled out of the big black bushing that is up under the truck. I didn't notice any nuts on mine (inside the cab that is). The only one I had nuts on were the two up front at the radiator support. Sorry for a "no help" answer.

What are you hitting with a hammer???

Go under the truck....heat the nut / sleeve up.....go back on top and put an impact on it and your good....when we did scottys his was being a PITA and we did that and got them all out...

(used all my damn propane too)
