Next step for removing a stubborn bolt from lower shock bushing:

Looks like I’ve tried just about everything to get the lower shock bolt out.  Tried a 5lb sledgehammer, jacking the truck off the wheel well to create space in the bushing (which is demolished), etc.  I’m down to cutting off the bolt and chiseling out the bushing, I think.

Here are some potential tools for the job:

Penetrating Oil (PB Blaster?)
Wire brush
Air chisel
cut cut-off tool
gloves
decent visegrips

I think I have:
Propane torch (I know I have the nossel, but may need more propane…we’ll see.)
