    I attempted to lower my carrier bearing a bit more. The stock bolt isn't long enough so I purchased longer bolts with new nuts.

    I was unable to get the nuts off the carrier bearing cross bar. My buddy believes they are spot welded. We tried everything to get them off. The bolts come out just fine but I did have trouble getting them back in.

    Has anyone had issues removing the nuts? If so, how did you get them off?

    Thanks

    yeah, they are welded on from the factory. jsut go to the hardware store and get some grade 8 bolts with the same diamiter and thread, just longer of course. if you bring one of the bolts in with you, they should be able to find what you need

    Just purchase longer bolts that are the same size as the stock. And most the nuts are spot welded like any vehicle.

    Now I know! I had a tough time threading the stock ones back in so I likely screwed up the nuts.

    Appreciate the responses.
