I picked up another axle side bolt to use on the frame side last night and installed it. The frame side bolt also had a tapered shank. So far so good on the drive to work today, I wont hold my breath. I noticed that when applying pressure to the frame side mounting bracket with a pry bar it has some give to it, looks flimsy... I dont think the engineers really put much effort into the front and rear suspension on these WJs.
