So I've been trying to put a lift on my truck all day and keep running into little issues. Figured em all out but one. The lower control arm bolts won't budge. The nuts came off fine but the bolt won't turn or budge with a punch. Has anyone else run into this?

Many have run into it, a lot of people have to cut off the old arms and replace them along with the cam bolts.

I was THIIIIIIS close to doing that as well, but a day of (VERY CAREFUL) torch work and a BFG got them loosened up. Give it a day or so of good solid elbow grease, after that, it may be worth pricing out some new arms...just my couple pennies...

Spray lube the hell out of them. Let sit. Jack the truck up so there is no load on the arms. Hit bolt with impact wrench to get spinning. Wack with BFH.
