    I trying to put an AAL on right now and the centering bolt on the leafs wont budge. Ive tried clamping it down and tightening it as tight as i could but it still wont budge. What should i do?

    ...?

    I cut the top off, and the leaves come off over top. it's not bolted to the axle, it's just sitting in there, the u bolts are holding the leaves on.

    Sounds like you need to just resort to a cutoff wheel (Harbor freight <$20). I'd a thought it'd just snap if it were rusted.

    because you have to hold the bottom end of the center pin with a pair of vise grips otherwise it will just spin.

    if thats not your problem you just need a bigger breaker bar

    or me just using my southern ingenuity if it still wont budge, then put a ratchet strap around the breaker bar then find somewhere else to put it through and keep on tightening it. eventually it will bulge after so much tightening
