The suspension is pushing on the control arms and thus their mounting bolts when the TJ is sitting on the or when the axles are drooping like when the TJ is being supported by frame stands. Lift the axle up a tad with a floor jack to remove the tension on the control arm bolts & they should come out fairly easily.

Finesse is the key to getting the axle properly positioned up or down just enough so the control arm bolts will come out.
