Hello and thanks in advance to anyone who may be able to help.
I’ve got an 07, V6, I wrecked the front end and am trying to rebuild. I’m trying to remove what I believe is technically called the radiator enclosure. (Dog house frame rails that fenders, battery box etc bolt to.)

At the bottom for each side there is an 18mm bolt that has is secured to the shotgun rails that I can’t get to break loose. It does spin but the bushing it’s connected to spins with it and I can’t figure out how to make it stop so I can turn the bolt. It looks like it possibly takes a rather large Allen wrench, but it must have a hole in the center to allow for the bolt to enter so it can slide into place. Despite my best effort I can’t seem to find this tool if it exists.
If anyone knows the proper way to remove these, or what specific tool is required I’d love to know.
