Try using a trolley jack on the front end, give it a little support & then see if you can budge the bolt using a punch.

Remove the bolt for the lower control arm to sub frame & see if you can move the lower control arm enough to line the bolt up to get it out. Sounds like something is bent under there.

Cheers
