    You're talking about the bolts that hold the front and rear of the leafs in? If so, did you take the back pins out from the shackles first? Makes it easier doing it that way first.

    Try some heat (if the new leaf pack as new bushings). It might at least save the bolt.

    turn the bolt with a wrench or impact when you remove the nut.. should free it up. take all load off the springs also
