Hey guys - since i have to cut the shackle bolts on my brothers XJ i was wondering if anyone knew the correct size to replace it with? I got the new shackles from Quadratec today so wanted to pick up the bolts once i was off work tonight.

So i got the bolts needed for the rear springs. Now does anyone have any tips on easy removal of the nut that is welded inside the frame? I cut open the bottom for access, but not sure what's the best approach to break it free.

I'd just chisel that nut out and start over with a new one.
Mine pulled that shit on me to.. Had to cut the floors open lol

Edit: You could also try to get a wrench on it and break the welds but it's kinda iffy since you can only use the open end of the wrench.It might just slip off.

tried a wrench, but the amount of space and the rust make it difficult. I'm heading back to the shop now, so i'll try to chisel it out. thanks for the ideas
