PB blaster and a good breaker bar will take those bolts...

I used a box end wrench on one of the bolts at the end of the drive shaft to help pivot it...

i still cannot get the last two bolts off of the crossmember. they go down about half way, but then they get super tight. im afraid that if i force it i might cross thread it or simply break the bolt.... ive been soaking the shit out of them the past couple of nights with liquid wrench.. i guess i better step up to something more powerful. anyone have any experience with the same problem?

PB Blaster is so much better than liquid wrench. I've tried both, but nothing seems to do the job quite like PB Blaster... I'd give that stuff a whirl.

Rust and crap build up in the threads as you loosen, and eventually lock the bolt/nut. Tighten it again (not tight, but enough to back the bolt/nut away from the build up of dirt/rust) clean the threads and try agian. Repeat if necessary.

im going to replace the rear diff mount.... i cleaned off all the gunk from the crossmember. think i might have shaved off almost a pound :D looks brand new now. also my rear diff and most of my undercarriage have some light rust and gunk on it, would it be wise to clean it and then spray with some rust protective spray?

PB is about 2x as much as WD40, but works about 10x better/faster! Good luck, take some pics, and let us know how it goes. (I still need to do mine...)
