Anyone had body lift problems?

I don't know if any of you guys had body lift problems, but I think I was banned when this happened. Can anyone guess what happened?


By the way, this picture is me right before of a major 65 mph highway. (PS: this picture is like 8 months old or something)

I romped that lil bolt that holds my steering shaft together, it fell out, i went straight onto the curb and stopped there. Walked home, got some tools, I live across from home depot so I picked up lotsa random bolts and then I built her stronger and better

same thing happened to me not to many months after i did mine. went up over a curb, almost hitting a telephone pole. why it fell out i dont know, but i limped it home, and put in a new bolt. but now, the bolt that has been in there for so long being a little smaller than should be, has damaged my steering box.

I think the bolt I replaced it with is a tiny bit smaller, but not too badly. The new bolt I used permanent thread locker and then I also taped around the bolt with duct tape. Therefore, even if the nut fell off the tape would hold it in. It has worked well so far.

well, I thought the same about my muffler bracket bolt.....a couple days ago, I noticed the muffler hangin down, and the bolt was gone. This time, I put thread lock on it. I guess theres a ton of vibration on it.

No problem with mine, only 20k on the truck and about 13k on the body lift. Mild offroading, daily driver.
