Has anyone removed the front upper passenger side control arm bolt? It looks like the frame bolt is almost blocked by the exhaust. Planning on doing lift this weekend and just planning for anything the might slow me down.

I just did mine a few weeks back. Ended up just bending the heat shield down by pushing the bolt out. You can cut the bolt head off so you don't damage the heat shield. But you need a replacement.

I got it out by getting the axle Side free first, then using that as a kind of leverage and wiggled the arm to get it off angle just enough to get it out. Might need to press that heat shield down a little.
