I replaced the driver side strut just fine but the splined bolt goes into the control arm is stuck to the bushing in whatever the part is that goes into the lower control arm. I didn't realize that it was stuck to the bushing and I struggled to try to get the bolt out for the better part of three hours and needless to say I've destroyed the bushing. I also cannot get the bolt out so I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas or knows what that part is that connects to the control arm and also the axle. I have ended up bolting everything else back together replacing the sway bar end link and just parked my truck as that splined bolt is not all the way in. Any ideas or help is much appreciated, my next idea was to heat the bolt and hopefully melt it off that bushing and pull it out but will I be able to replace just the bushing or will I have to replace the whole part?
