Default Upper and Lower Comtrol Arms

I am lifting my XJ to 6.5" and for some reason the lower control arm will not come off. The reason is because the bolt is stuck inside but there is no nut on the back. Someone please help me with this!

Is this a build thread?

You can't hammer the bolt through?

Sometimes they get wedged in there. You can thread the nut on a few times and hit it with a hammer as far as you can. Then either get a punch and hit the bolt the rest of the way out or sometimes you can unscrew them out with your ratchet

Yeah I used a torch and impact but nothing. No one has been able to tell me what is wrong with it. I don't understand it I used pb blaster and pried it but nothing so far
