Default lift progress

Well so far i've got the rear end in. had that done wednesday evening. Yesterday i took a break and rested a bit. So today i start on the front end, and i get both coils out, but the passenger side lca's bolt/nut is not coming out.

The reason is/was because the rubber bushing must've been caught in the thread or something like that because as soon as I would loosen the bolt with a ratchet, it would snap back to where i started loosening.

so i had to cut/pry the lca out..and it sucked. I might have slightly bent the caster that was inside there. so if this is a problem please tell me before i put the lift's lca in there.

anyone every run hercules m/t? it's the only decent priced tire in my town (small town)

Your bolt seized to the metal sleeve in the bushing. It happens VERY OFTEN. I hate that. If you can, use Anti-Seize on the bolts before you reinstall them. Coat them with a thick layer of it so it doesn't seize up in the future. Use that stuff on EVERYTHING that's threaded.

Position your bottle jack on the ground under the shock mount or pinion and jack it up. It'll start to go back in position.
