FRONT LEAF SPRING REPLACEMENT

1995 Jeep Wrangler

Suspension problem
1995 Jeep Wrangler 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 95000 miles

Rear mounting bolts are seized up in the shacke. Nuts are removed and bolts removed from front shackles but unable to free up rear bolts to remove leaf springs. Been hitting them with penetrating oil for 4 days, tried 5 ft. Cheater bar on breaker bar, imact wrench, heat and hammer with no luck - any ideas would be appreciated as I'm out of 'em.

I had the same problem with mine, just took a lot of patients and working them back and forth then finally the came loose.

These by far can be the most frustrating bolts to remove. You must remove them at the nut end and not the bolt. It might take upwards of 250 ft. Lbs of torque to remove.
