Default help! core support body mounts.

I am doing my body lift this week and ran into some trouble. i took off the top nuts on the body mounts for the core support, and I can't seem to get the bolt out. I have tried heat and pb blaster. Can I cut the bottom of the bolt off? Any ideas would be great. Thanks in advanced.

Thanks I have read that and my instructions a dozen times. Guess I'll have the little lady sit on core support to see if that helps. lol

Those things are a pain! I hate to torch 4 of them to remove them and I went to the dealer to get replacement threaded bushings. They ran about 24.00 each but, It replaced to old ones anyway! Try prying them down a little and just cut the bolt

I think thats what I'm gonna do. the torch isn't working. I had to cut the two rear cab bolts out. I should have just cut them all out, would have saved me a lot of time. Thanks for the reply.
