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.

So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

Did you heat the **** outta the bolt head?

The pic looks like you could maybe get some vicegrips on the sleeve.

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