trust me, with the location of this nut, the only access is from the top. you cant get a wrench or vice grips or anything on this thing. i guess a sawzall is my only choice. the exhaust passes right over the top of it, look at your left sway bar U-bracket and you will know what i am talking about

it looks like the picture i have below. i tried to draw a diagram of it the best i can. the nut sits inside that grey opening and you can only get to it from the top since the lower nut blocks any access from the bottom. they both were stationary nuts, but the one broke free from its welds. now the bolt is backed off out of the nut like 1/4 inch or so
