I am thinking that possibly you may have needed a little more support from the jack so that bolt would be better aligned and you may have been also fighting the weight of the suspension. Also when I saw the CJ Pony install video he and others did comment that the lower bolt can sometimes be a pain. I am just counting my blessings that it didn't turn into one of my usually 3x's the amount of time I thought I would have to spend or the classic, I'm giving up today and will try first thing in the morning.Really?!? I felt like I was yanking way too hard on the lower control arm, and left well enough alone. The torque wrench was set to 129, and it got snug as a rug, but I never got a click.
