Does the body mount bushing go on the other side of the sidebar.

The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." ....

Froom the directions:

Quote

1 Remove the 2 existing body mount bolts from frame mounting locations located at front and rear of the Vehicle. Please note: Do not remove the rubber bushing from the retainer on the vehicle, the bracket mounts to the bushing with the factory bolts.



It sounds to me that the bar mount goes between the bolt and the bushing.

Welcome to world of Jeeps. The captured nut has probably broken loose. I don't know much about the YJ frames, but there may be a hole in it that you can get a wrench into to hold the captured nut to remove teh bolt.
