Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks
Replacing struts on 2007 dodge ram 1500 4x4 can't get front lower strut bolt out of bushing it's seized in it any suggestions on getting bolt out with out tearing bushing out.
Spray plenty of WD-40 -crc on the area . Use a impact gun and go from up to off repeatedly . The quick hammers and the quick reversal along with the rust lubricant may break the rust seal on the bolt. Only let it hammer for a few hits before reversing it . The vibrations may work . . IF you have access to an oxy set try heating the bolt and let the heat travel up the bolt to assist . Do not let the area get too hot as it will affect the rubber bonding.

That works fine on a relatively new vehicle but one that has run in salt etc you'll save a lot of time if you remove the steering knuckle completey by separating lower ball joint and outer tie rod end ball joint and bring the whole steering knuckle to a bench to separate the hub/bearing. Soak everything with penetrant, loosen the bolts a few turns and try hitting right on the bolt heads. I also made a very sharp wedge from a chisel and rammed it hard on the other side to seoarate the hub. It will finally come apart then you'll see all the **** that was binding it due to an alumininum knuckle re-acting with a steel hub. Clean the hole and grease everything and fit new bearings
