AAACK!! help please...

Bushings suck!!

Does anyone have a trick for getting the bolt through an old corroded bushing? I need to remove the trailing arms. I got them off the frame but I swear to save my life I can't get the bolts to release from the bushings...

What's the trick? I've tried a breaker bar, breaker bar with hi-lift handle extension, impact wrench, BFH, liquid wrench... what's left to try?

suggestions please?

Air hammer, red wrench (which will smoke the bushing -- do not breath the fumes as they are really bad) etc.

For those of you keeping track at home.... just FINALLY got the last of those bloody bolts out!! and the axle housings are now completely removed from my truck!!

it took all of the following: ratchet, screwdriver, impact wrench, liquid wrench, a red wrench, air hammer, a BFH and a sawzall...

I think a little anti-seize is in order when I put it all back together don't cha' think?
