orange05tj did you try hitting the wrench with a lump hammer? I had to the first time I took mine apart. I used a socket wrench with the torx bit and held it in place, then put a 18mm open end on the nut and hit with a hammer, came off after a few smacks.

Jeep Homemade Swaybar Disconnects

when you do get the swaybar unbolted use a jack on one side of the axle and jack it up as far as you can so the other side is down far enough to the point where the spring just falls out.

having trouble with my spacer install

So my dad and I started working on my skyjacker 2 inch spacer lift this morning, and now its 4:30 and we're completely stuck. the bolt the instructions tells us to loosen, is completely stuck. we cant loosen it so removal is completely stopped. after this it should be relatively easy to atleast get the spring out, or atleast ive read that here. what would you guys recommend for my next step?

its the bolt on the bottom, ive got the starhead, some penetrating oil, it just wont budge.
