I found the reason I have broke 2 tq arms is because the where the bolt goes into on the top of the rear is stripped. I have to retap the thread. Does anyone know where I can get this done at. 9Ball (tony) suggested Madmad. I just really hope I dont have to drop the rear for this because I cant afford all this stuff. Let me know guys

If it were me, I would find the next higher diameter
SAE bolts that you can get in Grade 8, and drill & tap
on my driveway. You would want to take some care
with tapping (1/2 turn forward, full turn back, clear
the hole completely every couple of turns etc.) but
you can drill nodular iron with a decent cobalt or TiN
coated bit with no problem. Do not break the tap off
though, or life will suck.
