    Im installing my mount on a 2001 chevy 2500hd having trouble with the angle bracket bolts. Seems impossible to get a wrench or socket on them. Maybe try some smaller bolts? Any tips would be helpful. Thanks

    Do not reduce fastener size, they're that size for a reason. A thin/slim line open end wrench slipped in right below where the control arm attaches to the frame works best. Being thinner than a normal wrench makes all the difference. They can be hard to find but perhaps digging through a few buddy's toolboxes maybe you could find one to borrow. Or take a cheap wrench and break out the old trusty grinder and make one. :nod:

    Thank you! Any tips for the middle bolt? Thats the one im having the most trouble with. Theres a hole to acces it but i can seem to find a socket that will fit inside the hole to get on the bolt.

    Yes that can be an issue too. Simply use a die-grinder and open the existing hole up slightly until you can slip the socket in. It doesn't take much so it's a minor amount of removal so it will in no way compromise any strength in the cross member.
