14. Ford installed the forward leaf spring bolts from the inside of the frame rail. The gas tank blocks the removal of the drive- side bolt. We used a reciprocating saw to cut the head off the bolt and slid the bolt out of the frame. The guys at JD Fabrication pointed out a factory lower A-arm bolt served as an exact replacement. We had some left over from our front suspension, so used one, but inserted it from outside the frame.
