    you almost need to replace the bushings when you do old leaf bushings.

    yea I thought I ordered them but was sadly mistaken when I went to the shop and got the rest of the bushings.



    time to start consuming beer I guess, that always makes things easier doesn't it??

    I am lifting my 93 YJ and have put a post on the Technical forum about the same problem you are having. Feed back to me was to get a cut off wheel on a grinder and cut the bolts out of the hangers. You will do some damage to the leafs but in my case I am replacing them and the bushings. Good luck
