Trying to remove rear shackles - can't pull bolt out!
I trying to remove my rear shackles, but the lower bolt on my shackle will not pull out. The top pulls out just fine, the left side of the shackle remains in place because the lower bolt seems to be stuck in the inside bushing. I've tried and tried prying it out with with a 3' pry bar. I actually had to secure my leaf pack to the other leaf pack with a come-a-long because I was prying so hard that my driver's side leaf pack was being pulled out of alignment. I also tried hitting it with a 3lb hammer with not a budge. I also tried jamming two nuts on the bolt to try and torque it out of the bushing...no go. What the hell is this thing holding onto?!
