Stuck Lift Kit

Any suggestions on removing the lift kit spacers from the bolts? they r seized, tried drilling into the bed to bang on the bolts from above to avail. gonna try to cut off the spacers with a grinder once I have the wheels tomorrow.

Sounds like the bolts are upside down so spray some kind of penetrating fluid in the top. Let it soak. Grab ahold of the spacers with a big pair of channel locks and turn bolt To try to break free. Depending on what there made of heat might help. But if your able to hit them square from above with a BFH seams like your screwed already. It sounds like sawzall/grinder for the win.
If there just cheapo plastic ones and you got some ghetto redneck in ya you could drill holes horizontal towards the bolt to try and relieve some of the pressure/rust. Again be a total pita but might help if your desperate.

Nice! I may try drilling horizontal... Hopefully I can cut em off easy enough... gotta disconnect gas tank i think.
