Ok, this is seriously not a flame, but how the hell could you think you could go down the road without front axles? Obviously more than one person has tried it, but it seems obvious to me, trying to figure out how one could come to the conclusion it would work.

To the OP, I would find someone to weld a nut on the screw head, then heat it up real good and wrench it out before you break it off and have to drill the whole thing out.

Awsome! I went to a local welding place today and they got it out easily! They heated it up, chizeled the **** out of the top, heated it some more, sprayed some stuff, welded on an entire Grade 8 bolt, and it came right out.. $45 and I'm happy.

These threads were far more rusted than the other one, so for no extra charge he sprayed some cutting oil in there and in a way re-cut/cut out the threads so they are smooth as butter now...

It's easier to go down a hill than up it but the view is much better at the top.

The front wheel bolts to the unit bearing, which LOOKS like it's pressed together pretty well. Many people (including me) didn't know that the outer axle shaft is needed to keep the bearing together. You can run fine without INNER shafts in the front, but you NEED the stub shafts in place.
My "experience" happened on my old XJ, and was quite expensive to repair. I'm thankful I was only going a few MPH as I was turning into the parking lot of Wally World.
It cost me a few bucks to fix and no one got hurt. A cheap lesson IMO.

Sorry you had all those problems, but you really need to get some PB Blaster. I would bet that if you PB Blastered them and let it set for awhile and then used a 16-24" breaker bar and some slow and easy pressure, they would likely have backed right out. If not, resort to the heat treatment. Now that I know about PB, I blast all the nuts and bolts ahead of time on whatever we are working on. Quite the lifesaver.

LOL - I've done it before. Either through a search or just browsing and not realizing how far back you've gone.

So it won't work driving without front axle shafts? I've always wondered if that would work or not...

Can you drill it out with a slightly larger size, then either re-tap to a larger size bolt, or use a nut and bolt?

He probably tried that 6 years ago.
