So with an 8" pipe wrench and my incredably huge biceps I got the bolt off. No evidence of a cotter pin but I don't think a lock washer is normally on this bolt? Either way it's off.

Now, is there any reason why 5 Auto parts stores lack any knowledge of trac bar bushings? None of them knew what a trac bar was, even the 'experts'.

Went to them all again and tried using panhard, and still resulted in nothing. So, I grabbed one of the 4wheel mags and pointed to the bar and said I needed bushing for this part.. Most asked me what it's purpose was, again, and Pepboys told me it'd be 66 dollars and some change..

I'll just wait a few days and get them from JBG, at the end of the day I'm still spending as much in gas.
