I can't get the two 19mm bolts to move one bit. I've tried liquid wrench, a hammer, using a pipe as an extension, but no go. Any suggestions?

A good fitting socket and a longer extension, heat will damage internal seals best not to use it.

The longest extension you can find, it will move.

that the front hubs are at full left or right lock, then you can use a longer cheater bar!

And didja try heating with a propane torch, then squirting penetrating oil on the hot bolt (have a wringing wet rag handy it case it flames up too much). The thermal shock will often jar the bolt loose.

It'll come off, just keep trying.

Cheers

Mike

breaker bar when I need the leverage.....cost about $5 at Lowe's. It's usually required when dropping the rear subframe for the first time in 32 years.
