And if air no available, drill 'er out. Start with a sharp small bit and working you way up. It makes for easy work after the first one goes through.

Not sure if the 95 is one lower bolt or two. If one it'* just a sleeve with a bolt/nut through it. If it'* two bolts, they are threaded clips that attach to lower mount.

The threads don't go the full length of the bolt and it doesn't screw through the knuckle.
You're going to need an air hammer with balls or some luck, a punch, and a mini sledge.
