Last night I started on my body lift and the first bolt I tried to break loose snapped. It's looks to be almost flush with the body. Is welding a nut to the bolt the only way to remove? Also do you guys recommend using an impact first or hand tools. I tried to loosen without a breaker bar first.. Nothing. Tried with a breaker bar... Snap! Just post ways you got around BL troubles and how you installed.
The BL is 1.25". And yeah I always use PB before any bolts are getting removed new or old. I just don't want to end up drilling out 5+ of the bolts. I might just try the impact on the next one, since the breaker bar broke the first.
Finished up the body lift today, all the other bolts came out easily with no problems. Thought I could drill out the broken bolt with the puck in but wrong, so I'll drop that side back down sometime. For the time being ill have all bolts in besides driver side middle. Didn't have time to finish MML, tried but couldn't figure out the best way to get to the cross bolts.
