What do you mean 2" block and level kit?

Ok guys I can't believe it's coming to this after having to find another way to and from work all week but I might actually have to put my truck back together because this steering shaft isn't budging at all...

Ah.

So 3" body lift with 2" coil spacers up front? Sounds good to me if you have it converted to coils up front.

I guess I have no choice but to put my truck back together and make it driveable again...

Did u get the bed lifted?
U can leave that lifted it will look stupid but if its only for a week it will be fine.
In all honesty i dont know why youre having such troubles with it. I took the bolt out and tapped it with a hammer and mine came right apart.

Most people are saying theirs came right off too. No, luckily the bed isn't lifted yet. But with it back together at least I can continue to try getting the steering shaft off while being able to drive it and use it to commute...

I'm not giving up, but it's my daily driver.

Its crazy your truck is newer too. Damn you fazda! I chance you have access to a air hammer/chisel? Those really work wonders. I dont know if you buy into this but this oil called Kroil is suppose to had real low surface tension (which means good penetrating properties), its expensive though, my dad loves the stuff.

Yeah it's crazy! I know I saw a post about someone having this problem... It was a Mazda too, but it was I think a 97'. Different forum, thread had one post and it was from 2011 though... So no help there.

I don't have an appropriately sized compressor at my house right now to run air tools unfortunately. "No space" and not my house...

If you have the spare cash buy then return the tools or rent. I know its frowned upon, but this is a last resort kind of thing.
