Went to the scrapper and found an a trackbar......failed to get it off as even with a breaker bar and torx I could not budge that bolt. So I went to autovalue and used my uncles account and got a plain jane bar for 86 bux canuk.
So last night I whip over to the workspace and start on removing the old bar that busted at the balljoint stud. Pulled the cotter pin, removed the crown nut and spent 10 minutes trying to pound the bloody stud down...nothing.
Break out the drill, start drilling the stud out from the bottom....fast forward 5 minutes....still drilling.....10 minutes...bah. grab BFH use the ball side and start pounding....finally it drops.
AH.....ready for the other side. In anticipation of removal I soaked this bolt a couple times over the past week with some super penatrant.
Someone has already swapped the torx for a regular bolt...sweet.
Break out the trusty breaker and get some arm on there....it moved a little, giver some more, nothing....HUH?!?!?!?
So, I break out the air rachet....I'll show you.....BRRRRRRTTTT....nothing.
So you want it that way....impact gun...BRRRRT BRRT BRRRT nothing.
Back to the breaker, add foot pushing down.....I hear it crack....FINALLY!
Get back underneath with the bar....nothing.
Back to the impact to try and jostle this loose a bit.... BBRRT BRRT SPIN......
Broke the freaking bolt...
Dig through all the spare bolts and nuts that I have...nothing.
All for a bar that probably will be replaced with an adjustable in a month or 2.
