5. The first issue we encountered was when the bolt on the driver side, during removal, hit the A/C compressor. Energy Suspension recommends lifting the engine to get the bolt out, but if you grind the bottom thread to shorten the bolt flush with the nut, it can be removed. Alternately you could cut the bolt and reinstall it upside-down, but then you risk the bolt’s falling out should it ever come loose.
