    During the process of replacing my uca’s i found that my angle grinder wouldnt fit in the available space to cut the bolt.

    I was able to remove that bolt with some finagling and channel locks.

    First i removed the front bolt and pull the rear bolt out as far as possible. Then i twisted the uca by pushing the front end inward.

    At this point the rear bolt was angled backward so that i could unthread it with some channel locks and it would pass behind the boot.

    As a side note, nothing broke, nothing bent and i was able to reuse the bolt.
