Default Rear bolt stuck. Please help

I'm putting a new set of springs on my 02 ex sedan, and when I try to take the rear strut out, the bolt by the brake won't come loose. Are the threads left handed or something? Help please!

No left handed bolts as far as i know back there. Are you talking about the lower control arm bolt? If so, these photos describe my latest adventure replacing rear shocks. Almost every suspension bolt was seized to the inner collar of its bushing, requiring them to be sawsall cut out. These bolts laughed at PB blaster (for days), Map gas and impact guns.

Yep it was the lower control arm bolt, but I ended up just taking out the entire control arm and put the spring compressors on inside the wheel well. The other rear side wasn't stuck at all and now I have all my new lowering springs on. Thanks for the help though!
