Finally got my shocks on...but

Well I finally got my shocks on the other day. All was going well until I got to the front drivers side when i broke the lower shock mount. P#ssed me off. I went ahead and drilled out the stud and placed a bolt through and got it to work. Well the next day I went fishing out in the woods and I'm driving home and I hear something hit the bottom of the truck. Didn't sound like a rock so I got out to check. The dang nut came off and my shock was barely hanging on. I had to stop every few miles to push the shock back on. I put a new bolt and nut on when I got home and this time I broke the bolt. My truck is up on jackstands in the garage now waiting to be fixed again. So now I'm going out tonight to try again with some loctite this time.
