Found it. Both sides are loose? Can I simply tighten or do I need gaskets? And what is it?

Put plenty of releasing fluid. Liquid wrench and give it a good clean with a wire brush before attempting to undo it.

It's the bottom of the shock absorber. You need bushes. The old ones are shot.

ok, so showing my lack of wrenching skills, I cannot get this damned lower shock bolt off!!!! I got the drivers side off with several days of penetrating fluid and a 1/2 hour of trying, but pass side will not budge. Tried heat as well, and nothing. Problem is I cannot get my vise grips to hold the bottom of the bolt. Any suggestions?

An impact gun can help. If you are replacing the shock you can put the vice grips on the body or shaft higher up but you'll likely damage the shock so don't try this if you are just replacing the bushing.
