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.
Do you

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.
