Ok, the job is done.
For anyone who needs the information, the front bar is a pill to remove.
I started with a sawzall, it worked good.
I cut half way through the bar in about three minutes.
It was awkward.
So I decided to try my six year old $10 (free from HarborFreight)
60 seconds later, the bar is cut in half.
The rear bar falls right off.
Both bars, all four end links, nuts, bolts, bushings, dust caps and bushing brackets weigh 39 lbs.
I looked at Chilton and Haynes manuals on how to remove these things, both had the exact same instructions.
So, just cut the fucker in half for a drag car!
