welded nut?

does anyone know if the nut on the steering stabilizer bracket for the axel mount is welded on?

I can not get it to move and stripped it. Then i proceeded to cut to off with a cutting wheel. With only a few thread left, I decided to attempt backing out the bolt, and it cam out effortlessly.

looking at the nut carefully, i looks as though it may be welded in place.

Cut off the welded nut and run a bolt/nut through the bracket. Either that or mount yours like I did mine.

Nope - mine works great mounted there. In fact, there is basically one spot where the brackets fit when mounted in this way. That location puts the shock right at middle travel.
