    installing an AAL and right now, trying to remove the centering pin. the entire bolt just keeps spinning when i try to take off the nut. the opposite end is just completely circular, so i cant hold it down with another wrench. how am i supposed to take this off?!

    If you have the leaf pack held together with a C-Clamp, try loosening the clamp just a hair to add pressure to the pin. This might give enough holding force to work the nut loose.
