soak it in pb blaster for a bit

if that doesn't help, use as long of a piece of steel pipe as practical, and put it on your ratchet as a cheater bar

if that still doesn't work, time for the  :flamer:

Hey rock rock,

Next time something like that happens again, spray some penetrating spray on it so that the fluid runs down and soaks into the threads.

Also, if you've got something small that's stuck that is moveable (eg. not stuck on the rig) then fire up your backyard bbq and let it warm up for 5 - 10 mins and then use some hot gloves and unscrew/unbolt it while it is hot. Works every time.

My friend had a motorcycle cylinder stud bolt freeze up and we through it in the barbie for 5 min, and it just threaded right outta there :thumbs:

now the front shackles are doing the same thing but there is no gunk between the shackle bolts and the bushings and it sucks i just want them to come off easy then on the drivers side the exuast is in the way of the top bolt and on the passengers side the driveshaft is in the way so i cant hammer it so ill prob have to drop the drive shaft i might be able to get around the exaust but im not sure then on the cold start injector i was unbolting that today and the bolt broke in there so now ill have to drill that out and re tap it and then  also today i tired to put my brohters radio in there from his 89 runner but the plugs are all diffrent so that didnt work

Ive had those same issues before, listen to Bazzi take your time and watch your fingers and it will come off.  I was trying to put a lift kit on my 84 years ago and the rear spring bolt was frozen to the bushing so I gave up.  When I was changing the suspension again last year I ended up cutting the outer half off of the frame mount.  It didnt bothere me to do that beings I wasnt gonna use it anyway but after I got the spring on the ground the bolt simply slid out. :smack:  Just use a GOOD penetrating oil like Kroil etc. and it will come.

Definitely go get a can of Aero-Kroil. It's expensive, like 9 bucks a can, but it works like no other product I've ever used. or if you want to make your own penetrating oil, use an old spray bottle and mix one half ATF with one half Kerosene

This is probabely a silly question, but Is your suspension loaded and that's the problem? I know you've got the truck jacked up, and make sure you've got a jack under the diff and you've applied some pressure up on the suspension so its the weight of the axle is not hanging on the springs which is putting pressure on the shackels. Also, your frame could be bent ? or your springs could be warped or something.. If the truck was in a serious accident b4 you bought it, it could have messed up the geometry...

You just answered your own question, well kinda.  You said that you had tried to get the bolts out with the axle t droop and with upward tension on it.  You need to make sure that the spring is basically at rest.  To get it there you'll need to put the frame on a jackstand and support the axle with a jack.  When you have the spring at rest the shackle plate will go on and off easily from the shackle bolts.  So I dont think that stuck bolts are the only issue your having.

When the spring is at rest the shackle olate will move freely on the bolts because there is no pressure pulling the bolts apart or pushing the together.

Those cold start injectors probably have different plugs. You can always change the plugs, but also check to see if the spray directions are the same. They are most likely also the same bolt pattern with 10mm bolts.

If you could imagine what leaf springs look like when they are off the truck sitting on the ground, then that's the arc they need to have. It will definitely be arched up (concave up) unless they are worn to out and have been to hell and back.

Try this: Jack the truck up from just to the right of the differential (which would be as close to the center of the axle as possible) and place some tall jack stands under each frame rail a couple of inches behind each front shackle. Let the jack all the way down, and then start jacking it right back up in the same location. Once the jack touches the axle, just apply enough pressure to when you see it barely move. Then try to wiggle the shackle or shackle bolts. If they still feel tight and snug, then go up about 1/2" increments on the jack and keep checking the bolt.

The sweat spot will be where the suspension is not loaded nor supporting the weight of the axle.

Regards,
BigMike

I thought in order to count as a sentence there had to be some sort of punctuation?  Not one capital letter, comma, or period.  But the spelling isnt too bad. :yupyup:
