Trying to install Camburg UCA's. Been trying for an hour with no luck to get the nut of the thru bolt holding the UCA to the frame to move. It is on there with well over 100 ft-lb. Any ideas??

Thanks in advance!!

We ended up using a breaker bar to get that bad boy loose. Just take a larger diameter pipe and place it over your torque or socket wrench and pull. Thats how i loosened up the bolts that tie the hitch into the frame.

Are you using an impact? If not have you tried using a breaker bar?

Yep...a piece of pipe over your wrench. I had to break some bolts like that when I did my lift.

Finally got it. Now just need a breaker bar to get the LCA loosened up to let the shock slip into the lower mount.

Encouraging that the passengers side is easier....had to remove the battery to back the UCA bolt all the way out.

The torque specs on those bolts are 173 ft/lb for the upper and 207 ft/lb for the lower so they are gonna be TIGHT!

Go down to home depot and buy yourself an electric impact gun. I got the dewalt and it broke those loose with ease. I think I paid 200.00 dollars for it. It will be money well spent for future projects. I like the electric because I didn't want to buy a compressor big enough to run one. Oh, almost forgot, get a swivel socket adapter to fit in those tight spots.
