and if the double nut doesn't work use a pipe wrench and a hammer...thats what we did on my bros 97...the double nuts stripped the threads so we just took a pipe wrench and hammered it on and it turned right out.
Oh and if you dont wanna buy one you can make one for a few bucks at ACE...just get some 1" square tubing and longer bolts and you are ready to go.
This really helped me out. I just did this on my 98XJ and I tried the 2 nuts, it stripped the threads. Then i used a pipe wrench and they both came out not to bad at all. The 1" square metal tubing I bought from ace seems a little this but hopefully it holds up good. I just used a come-along to line up the holes again. I strapped it to the leaf spring and the cross member and slowly cranked down on the come-along to get them to line up. My vibes are gone, very very slight vibes, but someone in the car with me would not even notice.
Thanks much guys

On my 01 Cherokee it has a stud on each side that sticks out from inside the frame, are these double ended studs on all Jeeps that will come out with the 2 nut trick? i want to do a tc drop but dont want the stud to break off and be s.o.l.
