81 J10 ow the he77 do I get this shackle bolt out!

I finished the Rusty's front springs and got all the rear off except for the back of the rear leafs. I can tell the whole shackle must come out of the box mount, but how? There is a small hole to get to the nut, but no way of turning it. And the bolt head is thin. Why didnt they use a bolt head that is about 1/2 inch thick. Its so thin, I can tell trying to crank it of is just going to round it. An I see no way of getting an impact on either end??????? Help!!!!!!!!!!Dennis

Hey Deer,
It sounds like its time to use the cutting torch on this one and replacing the shackle bolt with a new one...mike
