hello i am looking for some help, i have recently tried to remove the rear skid/suspension on my sled. the front bolts came out nicely but when it came time to remove the back bolts they cracked loose but continue to spin, when i look underneath the lock collar/retainer ring 5010155 is rotating with it and i cant remove the back bolts to remove the skid. can someone give me assistance? i have looked online for solutions and have come up with nothing, not even a video. TIA

Loosen one side first, then retighten it and loosen other side, then try both. I use an air impact and that seems to help also.

Like steep said.

One other thing that I have done... remove one bolt. get a longer bolt and nut of the same thread pitch. put the nut on the bolt and screw it back in a ways. Tighten the NUT to make the cross shaft tight and loosen and remove the other side. Then loosen the nut (put a wrench on the bolt to keep it from turning.) The bolt should turn out pretty easy.
