Thanks! On jackstands can be a pain but it isnt all that bad at all once you take your time and are patient. Pre soaking all your bolts in PB helps

PB is similar to WD40? Pick it up at Autozone?

Big +1 to that. PB Blaster is the best thing ever invented for getting old bolts out. That oil penetrates well and really makes life easier. Used it when I installed an exhaust on my old Mustang GT.

Pretty much all we use around here. The longer it sits the more penetration.

Does Ari from SC work for you guys? I met you before when you worked for TDC in Spartanburg, SC. Someone told me you started working for AR Design, hope he was right lol. Your welds were always so sick so it looks like he was not kidding.
