track bar install?

i just got an adjustable track bar for the front of my 2000 f250 psd 4x4.
And it says in the instructions the track bar bolts are torqued too 405 ft/lbs. how do i undo the old ones and how am i supposed to torque to that.

p.s I tryed with a 4 foot cheater bar to loosen the bolt at the axle side but it wont budge.

Impact Gun! When I installed mine i used a 1/2" gun to take the bolts out and just hammered them back together with it.

Ingersol Rand are very good guns. Lately at work though we've had some very good craftsman professionals hold up to a lot of everyday abuse.

Taking out my old trackbar killed my POS CH impact so I relied on a 1" breaker bar and 4' of jack handle. I used PB blaster like it was going out of style and also used my propane torch. Got it off and the new one on, eat your wheaties!

I had a hell of a time on the axle side of mine, I took a big breaker bar, and then literally took a floor jack at the end of the breaker bar and jacked up the breaker bar against the trucks weight to break it loose.

Heat the bolt up if you can. There are some big impacts 1000+tq but they are very very costly..

I had to get the bolt red hot and use a snap on impact to get the axel side off, other side just used alot of muscle and a breaker bar
