Hi guys. Need some help here. I'm currently rebuilding my whole front suspension and got everything off but the lower control arm. I got the bolt and nut to come loose but it refuses to come out. The bolt just keeps spinning as i turn it. tried penetrating spray and hamming it out but no luck. Pretty much already come to the conclusion to cut it out but i wanna see if you guys have any suggestions first and if i do need to cut it off what should i use to get the job done?

I was told to check out your page for this info and couldn't find it. Never thought to look under bushing lmao. Thank you!
Sad news is it looks like my bolts are acutely bent, will this still work for me?

Maybe. Depends how bad.

Bigger problem is Class 10.9 bolts do not bend in most cases. You have allot more damage done to control arms and/or frame to do that.

IF bolts really are bent then likely has wrong bolts install or major torch job to degrade the bolts. Once heated the bolts are junk.

You need new hardware... Bolts Nuts and if used, Washers.

Yep, turned out to be the wrong bolt. The bolt that was used was fully threaded and acutely threaded threw my bushing and also ended up bending inside them as well. Eleven blades latter I was finally able to pull my control arm off.
