I am doing rear wheel bearings on a 99 Impreza 2.2, drum brakes.
I am having a heck of a time with the Lateral Link Bolt. (drawing attached)
It seems to be rusted to the bushing collar and will not budge.
With a breaker bar and a cheater, it will rotate, hard then the bushings
"give-way" and it pops. Basicly the bolt, collar and bushings are all rotating
in the rear housing. Any ideas?
At this point, short of burning out the bushings and cutting the bolt at both ends,
I am stuck. Even if burn the bushings out, I do not think the collars will slide
through the rear housing? I have never had this apart before.
