Q: Rear Suspension troubleshooting on 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I am replacing the fixed (non- adjustable) track bar in the rear suspension. Removing only takes 2 bolts I have removed the one by the wheel which connects to the fixed and adjustable one. My problem is when i go to remove the other bolt it is located inside the rear cross memberand i was able to take the nut off but when you try to pull out the bolt to remove track bar the bolt hits the gas tank before it will come out. Do I simply lower the one side of the gas tank to allow the bolt to come out and if so how do i do that?

Another option is cut that bolt off so it comes out then replace it with a new one, in the opposite direction!
