When we first came out with our Weld Washers 8 years ago they had been made by 20 other companies for years. They were great as a preventative measure when first building a vehicle because they are 7/32" thick but were not as good for repair's. The reinforce a good hole with more than 3/16" of additional steel and come in 1/2", 9/16", 5/8", & 3/4" to cover the bases for you.
Then 3 years ago we added the Fixit Weld Washers. They were primarily for repairing a hole that was already bad from use. They create a clean new bolt hole in 1/2", 9/16", 5/8", or 3/4" and all are 3/8" thick so you don't have to worry about what you fix!
Now just 2 weeks ago we came up with something else along these lines that in some ways is even cooler! Our Threaded Weld Washers. These are used to add something to your chassis in as easy a way you can that is strong enough to stand up to years of use and abuse. They are available for a 5/16", 3/8", & 1/2" thread bolts and require a 3/4" hole to be drilled for mounting so they can be added for anything down to a 1 1/4" Tube and of course any plate or sheet stock.
I seriously see these as something that should be on pretty much any fabricators shelf because there are so many possible uses for them. I am not joking here, these simply make too much sense...
These are all found in our Reinforcements section where we have a whole bunch of things like these
Dude, those threaded weld washers are awesome. So many uses! I just used one the other day to replace a broken transmission skid nutsert in the frame. Not sure how you feel about using these for that, but it really worked great for it, especially since I had a few laying around. Works much better than welding a nut flush with the frame like I've seen done.

To bad that you dont make a set that converts the elongated holes for the cambolts to regular holes on the frontaxle on the ZJ,s.
The only option now is to cut out the entire controllarm mount and replace it with anotherone.

I just picked up a set of coil over hoops that the hole was too big, and mounting distance was too wide. A few of the fix it washers, and I was able to fix both problems quickly, and at the same time. Plus I thickened the holes a little over what they were. I couldn't be happier.
