Default lowering link bolt?

Tried to install my lowering links last night on my 2008 Jackpot. The forward bolt came off fine but the rear bolt would not budge for anything. I tried it with the bike lifted up and with the bike on the ground. Tried some wd40 as well. no luck. Any suggestions?

Attachment 8611 no more trash talk or I will not help you..you have to have some weight on the rear tire or shock. I like to use a half inch torque wrench with a 12" extension for leverage.

Look at my face is it not a joke? the illustration shows that the bolts are torque to 35 ft.lbs. I am guessing rust or corrosion is keeping it from not unbolting.

My friend came over tonight and we were able to get it off with some oomph. All installed and ready to rock.
