Rear Upper and Lower Suspension Arms
Our rear upper and lower suspension arm bushings are wore out and need replacing. I bought new arms with the bushings already in them a week ago but I am having super problems getting the bolt and nuts loose. I have tried PB Blaster, heat and even bought new impact sockets and a 1150 foot pound impact wrench. The impact nor a 4 foot cheater bar will break these bolts loose. The first one I tried busted my socket and rounded the head of the nut. I tried using new impact sockets with the new 1150 foot pound impact wrench, the socket doesn't bust but it totally rounded the head again.
It looks like the only option I have is to cut the bolt and replace with new ones. Does any one know the size, length and where I can buy some new ones, I need 8.
This is a 2003 Pathfinder LE.
Another question, is the rear suspension of a 4x4 and a regular rear wheel drive trailing arms the same. I found a set of bolts and nuts for a 4X4 but am not sure they are the same for a rear wheel drive, any one know if they are the same or not?
