Anyone have any advice for this? I want to do a torsion lift on my 02 but the nut that sits on top of the bolt you crank will not budge. Anyone else run into this issue ever? If so what was the solution?
This.^Isn’t there two nuts? I thought it was a jam nut setup so you’d have to loosen the top nut first.
There are def 2 on the driver side, the passenger side theyre both at the same angle so I wonder if rust somehow made it 1 nut. Ill keep trying things tho to get it loose, driver I have much more room Im doing pass side first because the exhaust Y pipe limits me on room a lot.Isn’t there two nuts?

I appreciate the advise. Ill try it out soonThis.^
There should be two nuts as stated. Two different part numbers, one is "thicker" than the other (I think it is the "adjuster" one but can't be sure without checking into it). Any ways, use penetrant spray as "MeToo" says. Hold the bottom nut in place with a wrench while trying to break the top, jam nut loose using both wrenches against each other. I try to get the jam nut loose before jacking the truck up to work on the bottom, adjusting nut.
I don't use heat or any type of impact tool on these parts.
