uh ohh, t-bar bolt broke.

well, I took out my lift blocks I added today, as well as lowered my t-bars back down to stock, however when bring the bolts back out had one of the heads ring off. . Is it ok to run on? It would seem to me because of the threads are still plenty inside of the plate thing, but wanted a second opinion. also, how would I go about fixing it? besides a straight axle, cause I dont have the money right now, lol.

You rounded off the bolt head? You'll be fine. You can get a replacement bolt even if you want.

Damn! that's a big bolt! I can't imagine breaking it off! There are several ways to get it out though, if that is the case.

ya, lol, I broke the head of the bolt off, dont know how I managed as I was using a socket and breaker bar, and lots of pb blast, but it did. If it will be fine, im just going to leave it. The truck is leveled back out, so no adjustment will need to be made anytime soon. i plan on a sas in the next 2 years anyway.

alright, im not to much worried about it right now, got way to many things sitting waiting to be done. probly later though. you ready for some uwharrie? my truck isnt gonna be worth a damn for the first few months, I dropped it back down to stock the other day. this summer though, I plan on a 3" body and some 33's. if not just some 32's and no body.
