Same thing happened to me the first time I replaced my shocks. There is a little metal collar inside all of that rubber that rusts and fuses to the bolt eventually. The only option is to cut the bolt out and buy some replacements, but be sure to coat that MFer with anti-seize compound before you put everything back together. And make sure to hammer your bracket back to square before putting everything back together.

Also, wtf happened @Tompoop?
