Rear track bar

Does the rear track bar frame mount bolt need to turn out? Meaning... is the bracket the bolt goes through threaded. I got the nut off and can not get the bolt out. I assumed i could just hammer it out. My torx bit is junk and not able to turn it

Ok thanks. I would not think it would be under tension with the other end undone. Ill have to get a good quality torx bit to turn it out. I have spring and bump stop bracket off and thought a BFH would slide it out but will not even move

The bolt is probably siezed to the sleeve in the trackbar bushing. Pretty common in the salt belt. Mine were like that too. Spray it with a lot of penetrant, and give it a few good whacks with a hammer, or maybe try an air hammer if you have one handy.
