Unfortunately, it'* just a regular stud. If I clamp some vise grips on it and remove it(not sure if that will be possible because of space limits) how hard would it be to find another stud to replace it? Is it going to be some weird metric $50 each type of thing?
Another complaint i have is it seems the nuts and bolts don't have proper sizes on them. If i use the closest metric it seems a little sloppy yet the closest SAE is sloppy as well. Never had that problem before and they aren't stripped either but with too much force i could see them easily getting stripped.
