Broke Strut Mount Bolt...what now?
I had been hearing the magical clunking noise in the car, but noticed that it was only on the left side and that it only made the noise when I went over a speedbump doing anything over 3mph. I knew it couldn't be the swaybar links, I just had that problem fixed. Maybe one of the strut mount bolts was loose. I mean, I kinda rushed to finish that side b/c I had to go to work. Maybe one of the bolts wasn't torqued down all the way. So I grab my handy-dandy torque wrench and turn away. I guess I turned too much and SNAP!!! There goes one of the bolts. Guess I needed an excuse to buy something. I've got a couple of options here, so what do you think of these:
Steeda Heavy Duty Upper Strut Mount Covers: Heavy Duty Upper Strut Mounts - Street - '05-'07
StangSuspension Camber Plates: StangSuspension.com Camber Plates - For 05-08 Mustangs - StangSuspension.com
I guess this was inevitable. I think the strut mount was jacked up anyway. Thanks for the help. Check out my damage...
