Front axle brackets
So was going to install my 4 inch lift today when we ran into a problem trying to remove the bolts that hold the axle housing to the brackets that attach to the cross member.
I have two questions..
1. The bolts would not move, and I have a large shop compressor and a very powerful impact. Are these bolts held with loctite that requires heat to break the bond?
2. The brackets from the cross member to the axle housing, how are they attached at the cross member? Are the vertical bolts actually studs? If not how do you remove the bolts without lifting the engine? Or get a wrench on them? I am really hoping they are studs...
