2008 grand Cherokee suspension issue

I am replacing the half shaft, wheel bearing, and output shaft seal on the front drivers side of my jeep.

Everything was going fine until I tried removing the lower strut mount clevace bolt from the lower control arm. It absolutely will not come out! I am hoping someone has a suggestion.

I have tried lots of penetrating oil and a brass hammer. I am avoiding heat because I don't want to trash the rubber bushing.

I would post a picture but don't appear to have permission yet.

I think that you need a bit more impact to get the bolt starting to move. An impact gun would help probably.
