PostWhore, The AFDB is on a lil tight.
I was torquing down the nuts that retain the top of a strut assm. last night and I stripped a nut because I read the wrong torque specs for a ford part instead of a monroe part. So I went and bought a new nut and washer from home depot and at worked its self tightening magic so well it snapped the strut stud before I reached the torque specs for monroe!!! Im clearly new at this and want to fix this if possible with out buying the new strut again. Im going to have a shop drill out the stud tomarrow but I have to drive the car there is that dangerous??? Can this be fixed with a new nut and bolt? I know there is some real experience here and thats why I love this board. I also need the car aligned so it drives funny to me when steering.
