Cut them out. You get new ones with the kit. These bolts do not come out. I really mean they don't come out. Have fun. I always hate doing these jobs.

SOURCE: Torque on spring shackles

My son works for Ford and had a sign-on to get into their online service manual and was able to look it up for me. I knew he could do this when I posted, but he wasn't home at the time and I had my truck on a lift. If interested, the torque specs on the spring shackles are 98lb, both at the frame and spring and 66lb for the shock.

SOURCE: Replacing chackle bushes on Mitsibushi 2.8tdi LDV?

Yes jack the car up from the jacking point so the tyre is off the ground this is located under the the chassis rail. Remove the tyre so it's out of your way. Remove the bolt that goes through the centre. Pry the bushes out with a small pry bar or large screw driver. Check that spring or bolt is not over worn. Install new ones. It may be a little difficult to line up to install bolt again but pisstantce is required. Refit tyre Remember remove the jack. DONE

How to install suspension bushes 1984 ford bronco 4x4

If you have leaf springs jack the truck and remove shackle plates and bushes. If you have coil springs remove the bars and the bushes may have to be pressed in and out.. If you have independent suspension you will have to remove the arms and press the bushes in and out.

check the track bar bushings for play in them, also check to make sure that the sway bar links are not broken, also if the rear axle has leaf springs for suspension it then could be the rear shackle bushings.

Front leaf springs shackles keep folding up and droping the front end

You will need to replace the front leaf springs or have them set and tensioned. This entails a specialist heating and bending the springs to their original shape. While you have the leaf springs out replace the shackle bushes. Depending on your budget now would be the time to buy those Old Man Emu suspension parts you've been eyeing.

Replacing front shackle 1983 jeep cj7

Shackles are pretty straight forward. Remove the existing bolts, change the shackles and reverse the procedure to install. Good idea to change the bushings while you're in there if they are at all questionable. It's best to do this with the CJ in the air, supported on the frame and use a floor jack under the axle to lift/lower the spring in/out of the shackle, one side at a time.
