Busted one of three of those bolts on Saturday....

Tried using a left handed bit and an ez-out....now I have twisted-off ez-out in my twisted-off bolt. (It's the bolt that doesn't go through the shackle hanger.....trying to decide how important it is?)


Good luck.

Good luck.
Those EZ-Out bits are hard steel. Probably not going to be able to drill that out. That's basically the same scenario I was in (plus a couple broken off cobalt bits) when I had to cut out the old bolt and nut and replace the nut.
As far as the bolt importance, it is VERY important if you want the steering box to stay attached (after market brackets usually add 1 or 2 more bolt attachments because the factory anchor points are barely adequate). There's no way I would go without all the bolts attached.

I foresee a cutting torch and welding in your future...

Spieg8,

People try, but there's just no getting around common sense, eh? A fine reason to learn how to weld! If I remove the bracket, I can get a nut on about 3 threads of the severed bolt. Welding that puppy on should give me one more try at removing the bolt with a wrench. (Followed of course, by the cutting torch method.)
