So I have most of the rear end disconnected and have gotten to be on a time schedule.
I am stuck on the T-50 bolt that holds the track bar in place, it turns but doesn't move so... I am obviously doing something wrong but not entirely sure what. Should I have something to pry the bolt with while I turn?
I've also seen bolts rust to the inside of the bushing sleeve. They feel like they're going to come out but won't because the sleeve obviously doesn't fit through the bolt hole in the mount. I don't really have a good way of fixing that...
I have been stumped on this swap for about a month now, mostly because time hasn't really been on my side.
I could swear I never saw a nut holding that bolt in but I will double check.
The two T-50 bolts holding the control arms in are stuck in place as well, at this point I think those are gonna have to be cut off. A combo of heavy deep creep and hammer time never got them to budge. Beyond that just need to get the brake cables and lines off and I will be good to go with swapping in the new D35.
I am just ready to have this done and have that Jeep roadworthy again.
If you have room, try using a 2 jaw puller on the control arm bolts. You might need another bolt to drive the stuck one out, but it's worth a shot.
