Someone installed the wrong bolts on my 69 GTO and I had to fix it shortly after I bought the car. My problem was that they used caps instead of nuts and they were bottomed out. I had a couple that were free-wheeling like that. I had to use a grinder to get them off. What I did was cut the tip off so it had an opening. Then I cut a groove in the bolt and held the bolt in place with a screwdriver and used a wrench to loosen and remove the cap. This was with the wheels and drums attached and the whole thing still on the car.
