Air tools would'nt make a difference in this case as the bolt has no threads to latch onto to press itself out. Both the nut & bolt are free & not captive. Turning the bolt simply spins the rubber suspension bushing in its outer sleeve. What is seized is the bushing insert & the pivoting portion of the suspension bolt. These are usually supposed to be lubed, but I guess this car saw too many winters. The bolt & the bushing are what I want to separate so that I may press out the bushing for replacement. The bolt could be pressed out w/ the bushing but you'd still have to remove the stuck part in order to install. Just wondering if there are any creative ideas. I have'nt come up w/ any yet.

BTW: I use power tools to disassemble it already. This snag is just something the the tools have'nt helped solve.

Part 24 and the bolt are stuck together.
