Thanks I appreciate the help I was able to get them out with extra downward pressure but now of course a new problem. The bolts that came with the lift kit are a bigger diameter than the factory ones so they do not fit into the captured nut. Because of the 2" spacers I cannot find replacement bolts that are as long as the ones that came with the kit. The mfg says they are supposed to be the correct ones in the box but the diameter is much larger. I've checked with Home Depot, Pep Boys, and Ace and they have the 1/2-13 bolt but not the required length for the spacers. Any more advice on where I can find bolts that will fit? Thanks!
