Engine crane, electric winch, Tirfor or something else?

I wouldn't say it's going to make it any worse. IMO I like everything to be just so, bolts in a sensibly sized hole etc, but with LRs you need that extra bit of room around it.

No real difference to be honest, both would be putting them in shear, *if* it moved.

I used old beer crates and bits of wood, just kept lifting one end, then the other until it all lined up, then pushed it into place

I am abit late to the party and i'm glad you came up with a good solution which worked :)

 

I thought i would point out this little gem i came across not so long ago, it's a 500lb winch which works off a cordless drill.

 

Having lots of these drills about and various dodgy body parts, i find it a doddle to move stuff about

Definately go with the 12mm bolts. I had a front towbar fitted to mine and managed to pull the top fixing bolts out of the chassis with the rotational force of pushing a trailer
