BOLTS TO CONTROL ARM

2003 Suzuki Aerio

Drive Train Axles Bearings problem

I have loosened the 17mm bolts to the control arm, one just turns, the other acts as if it is spring loaded. I cannot see or access the other end of the bolts. So if there is a nut on the end, I cannot get to it. The bolt that just turns does so because I heated the knuckle it passes through which softened the rubber bushing enough to allow the bolt to turn. I have also tried prying on the bolt as I turn it.
