Your right. Some things you can fudge over abit and some you can't. Drive line mounts are important. If you want to deviate from the factory application then you better have a really good understanding in regards to what you are about to change or modify or your problems are just going to get bigger and more costly.

I tend to agree. I'm planning to do it right when I get the chance. The only thing that worries me is how to to get to the holes. Everything is behind the frame and rack and pinion system. The one hole that has the bolt broken off in it I think will be the easiest, but the rest will be very hard to get to.

Has anyone ever heard of or used the Perma-coil thread repair system? or anything similar? Heli-coil I think was another system. It'* coiled steel wire used the reinforce and stripped out hole. You simply drill and tap the exsisting hole and install the inserts.

Thanks for the encouragment to fix it right. I know better than to use the "quick fix" method but was pissed off enough that I was ready to do that.

I know the feeling fully man we've all been guilty of it at some point. it'* really just normal drill and tap procedure but hard to get at. I'd really hunt down the original owner

Agreed. See if you can get away with drilling out the threads just a little bit, not too much. and then tapping it with a bolt size bigger... just an idea. Sorry to hear about what you got on your hands, but we will help you in every way you allow us to bud!
