Started this task this weekend. I had to remove the axle beam by removing the two brackets because one side was so siezed up. I'll have to take it in for alignment anyhow, so not too worried that I unmoutned those brackets.
Long story short, I had to cut through one of the bolts.
Anyone know where I can get a replacement pivot bolt that go through the bushing? The local parts shops can't figure it out or don't have a listing for it . Before I call the dealership, has anyone used and have specs for a different sized bolt that is close enough? The stock one has a thicker diameter near the flange? Is it that critical that I use a replacement identical to the factory one?
