Suspension Deconstruction

I spent some time over the last couple weeks getting the rest of the suspension removed from the Jeep. Some of those bolts were too tight to get off. But, as they say, it’s ain’t tight if it’s liquid! I had to use the torch to CUT the bolts off in a couple places. There’s just no way it was coming apart. The bolt itself had seized into the heim joint of the suspension. Burning it out was the only choice.

Removing the joints from the suspension arms proved to be another challenge. Some heat and penetrating oil did the trick. I mounted a vice to the storage rack I built this year and it gave me a nice strong platform to get some big wrenches on the jam nuts and such.
