Rear leaf spring bolt trouble

So I'm helping lift my friends XJ and the front shackle hanger not is giving trouble. As the bolt turns out the sleeve from the bushing is coming with it and spreading the mount. I don't want to turn it any further and break the mount.

Visegrips may work. But a small enough pipe wrench might be better. And make that sucker glow!!
