Removing front of leaf spring to add in subframe connector. Got the bolt backed out to point in pic. Now it's just spinning in eye and not backing out any more. Any ideas? Dont have room in back between the exhaust to get a power tool in to assist; dont want to drop exhaust if I dont have to.

Threads probably hung up on the edge of the spring. You can use a small jack under the spring eye and take some of the tension off it, or just use a small drift / punch or a cheap socket to knock it through with a hammer. Wear eye protection !

You should be able to knock it out with a punch if it's already that far out......
Be glad you don't have to cut it with a sawzall.... like the 3000 I've done in my life.
