I am swapping out my Rear Axle, easy up to the Allen Head Track bar Bolt.

It's a loose metric and looser SAE allen wrench. Either would strip out the head with much effort, and she is rusty.

Am I better off just drilling out the bolt? and from which side?

Thanks for the suggestions in advance

If it's the stock bolt, it should be a T55 torx on the axle end.

Thanks for the tip, that explains why an allen wrench was so sloppy, she was packed in mud. Now that we know what it is, I hope she comes loose.

That's exactly what I did for the 2 struts on the front sway bar.

I am still fighting the track bar bolt, My set goes up to Torx 50 and Hopefully Sears has 55's, then will work or strip the bolt head out?

Last choice, it's a toss up between using the Victor Wrench or a sawsall.
