Default Lower strut bolt frozen

Hello Ram fans,

I have been a long time Dodge owner. I now drive a 2008 Ram 1500 hemi 4x4. I'm currently in the process of replacing the front shocks, and rear shocks. I'm installing the rancho QuickLift struts on and Monroe sensa-trac load adjusters (coil overs) on the rear. I'm an unfortunately at a stand still due to the lower strut bolt being frozen in the bushing. A real PITA! I've found a monroe kit P/N 907971. It comes with bolt, nut and the bushing. Moog also offers the bushing P/N K200183. Napa says they have a napa brand available. I'm not a big fan of napa. That's my weekend. I plan to get the front shocks done today in time to watch the Saints -Seahawks game.

Im hoping someone has some experience and advice on how to get the bolt out. And tips on bushing removal / install.

I will post a detailed how to on front strut replacement once I am finished. I strongly recommend purchasing the lower bushing, nut and bolt for each side when you buy new shocks.
