Default Not a problem

I had noticed that my car has been sort of subtly wallowing side to side for some time but it wasn't bad enough to look into. However, the other day, I was under the rear trying to figure out why my gas cap light was on and noticed that the bolt on the left side rear sway bar bracket was MIA. After ordering replacement bolts for both brackets, I assumed that this was going to be a 10 minute job to just replace the bolt.
However, the bracket was distorted from being flexed without the bolt attaching it to the rear suspension so after trying different ways of persuading the bracket to come back into alignment so I could reinstall the bolt, I realized that the threads in the hole were fubared. A M10-150 tap later, all was good but the really nice part was being able to look up in techinfo what the correct torque spec was.
Just saying thanks to the site for helping me out.
