Well, I thought it had beat me many a time but I hereby claim success. The front bushing bolt took me a total of 4 hours to remove. Those 4 hours saw the use of a sawzall, a jig saw, a die grinder, and a 4.5" angle grinder. The other side should go smoother now that I've learned a thing or two. Oh wait, the PO has welded a 1/4" patch over the access hole in the framerail, Doooh. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.
