    Default Lower Wishbone Bolt Stuck

    Hi All,

    Need some help removing a stuck lower wishbone bolt, it's the one in the rear. Passenger side came off easy. Driver's side looks to be rusted in the bushing. What can I do? Tried soaking it in PB Blaster, no luck.

    Your going to have to try the unusual techniques. Penatrating fluid, heat and brute force. A good dead blow hammer will help, try and get a good straight shot, remove any thing that might get damaged by heat or hammering. Patient will help.

    The wishbone will move freely forward and back, limited though since it's still held captive at the front. Was thinking about getting a sawzall blade in-between the frame and wishbone and cutting the bolt since the bolt is only frozen to the bushing.

    That would be my last resort. It will be tough to run the saw blade thru without damaging the arm or the bracket.

    Go with the heat and a blow hammer
    If you do go with the "last resort" a dremel may be easier to control than a Sawzall if the angle will work lees chance of damaging something
