Do you mean the bolts are stripped or the block is stripped?

The right way (as you asked) would be to buy a heli-coil thread repair kit from the parts store. the kits are available in differant sizes (you'll want get one the size of your oem bolt). a good kit will come will the proper drill bit, tap, insert and insert install tool.
Then kust follow the instuctions on the package.
There are also thread repair epoxies out there but I've had limited luck with them.
Good luck

Yes i agree that the helicoil is the right way. Bring them the bolt and they schould be able to help you. But if it is just the bolt that is stripped obviously just buy new bolts
