Go to national corvette restorers society and ask your question. don't start grinding until you get the right answer. <a href="http://www.ncrs.org" target="_blank">www.ncrs.org</a>

IS THIS THE FRONT PIVOT BOLT ???
IF SO THE ONLY WAY IS GALLONS OF PENETRATIING OIL, PLUS MAYBE HEAT, REPLACE W/STAILESS FROM VETTE BRAKES. IF HEAR IS USED PROBABLY WILL HAVE TO REPLACE BUSHINGS ALSO.

IF THE LOWER SHOCK MOUNT AND DOESNT COME OUT OF THE "FORK" REMOVE AS AN ASSEMBLY, TAKE TO PARTS STORE AND PRESS OUT, AGAIN MAYBE HEAT, IF SO BUSHINGS ALSO

WHILE @ PARTS STORE PRESS AXLES (PROTECT THREADS)

WHEN REASSEMBLING TONS OF ANTISIEZE WILL HELP NEXT DIISASSY
