Addco Rear Sway bar installation question..

I'm having trouble removing the bolt for the sway bar end links because they are rusted and I don't have room for my impact wrench due to my tires and gas tank skid plate. I was hoping not to jack up my rear but should I just jack it up and remove my rear tires for better access? I already sprayed WD-40 on the bolts and that didn't work. Any other tips without having to jack it up?

What those guys have said. WD-40 is NOT a penetrating oil. It does nothing at all to rust. And take the extra minute to jack up the rear and remove the tires. Life will be much easier that way.

I'm surprised you're having trouble with the end links. I was able to get them off my Jeep last night with a socket wrench. The nut will start turning when you break it free so you'll need a pair of pliers or another wrench to keep it from spinning.

If the end link bolts are giving you trouble, be ready for some serious pain with the bushing bracket bolts. Those things were a complete PITA to get out even with penetrating oil and an impact wrench.
