REMOVING BOLT

Drive Train Axles Bearings problem

I am trying to replace the front right side axle assembly. The manuel says that after you have removed axle hex bolt you must remove only nut and hex bolt on the axle berring support arm to swing it out of the way to remove the axle. After a lot of work I have gotten the nut off but the bolt is spinning and not coming out. My question is how do I get the bolt out and is there a special trick to remove it. I have tried a air chisel from the threaded side as well as a chissel on bolt head side to bust it loose with no luck
