Unable to remove front Leaf Spring Bolt

Installing BMR Subframe Connectors and need to remove the bolt at the front location of the leaf spring but it is just turning and not coming out, did I break a weldnut inside?

Will I have to drill an access hole in the top to remove the bolt?

Re: Unable to remove front Leaf Spring Bolt

This is really common...google search ending with camaros.net brought up a bunch of threads...hope this helps. Does not require drilling a hole but it's gonna s*ck!

Re: Unable to remove front Leaf Spring Bolt

Thanks for the link, still confused how to get but will crawl back under there tomorrow and take a closer look?

Will have to see if I can find anything on YouTube? If not maybe I need to create one?

I got lucky wedging a large long screwdriver in there to hold the nut side....not easy, lots of cussing, and about 3 beers

Re: Unable to remove front Leaf Spring Bolt

Iíll definitely try wedging a screwdriver in there and soak it with some PB Blaster ahead of time?

Wedge a driver like posted , cut it it off however get the pocket out of the way and install good new ones so it doesn’t happen again.
