    Hey guys! Been a long time but I’m still around. Had some health challenges, most recently kidney cancer, but as my grandfather would say “I’m still kicking just not high!”

    I need some guidance. Figured now was as good time to replace the loose spring eye bolts on the rear of my truck but they won’t give up with out a fight! What’s the easiest way to remove them?

    What are you having trouble getting out, the bolt or the bushing?

    Both. I saw a video where a a bolt was screwed into the grease zerk fitting and used an impact gun to back it out. I tried that and may have moved it a 1/2”.
