Well I went outside and was going to start degreasing. I went to take the frame mounts off of the frame and I can't get to the 2 bolts that go INTO the frame. Any advice on how to get these 2? This is on a 73 with clamshell mounts.

You have to reach in through the openning where the control arm mounts. You could also drill an access hole in the bottom of the frame. They are a pain when the control arms are on, but pretty easy when they are off.

I guess these will just have to wait until I get my disc brake conversion and take my control arms off to refinish them.

The best thing to do is put the bolt in from the top and use a nut that has a built in flat. The Dorman grade 8 nuts and bolts that most hardware stores carry make it a little easier because the nut will stay on your socket.
