Broke Bolt for sway bar bushing in frame
Hello, I was replacing a rear sway bar link in my 2000 for taurus so i naturally had to drop one side of the sway bar in order to put the new link in because the old one was busted clean off. Now when i was putting the bolt back into the bushing that holds the sway bar to the frame, the bolt snaped off because of the bushing having so much pressure to get it to tighten down. I eve used a jack to release mostly all the tension off the bushing mount to the best i could w/o lifting the car up off the other jack. So i began to tighten it with a pipe on a ratchet and the old bolt snaped clean off in the frame with nothing to grab onto. So i did the unthinkable and welded the damn thing to the frame earlier today. I was in a hurry and realized this way dumb to do. So now tomoro iam going to try to tap the bolt out without messing up the threads in the frame as it just bolts into the frame with no nut. If i cant preserve the threads i will just have to bolt and nut it if possible. Now my question is, is there a easier way to put the bolth back through the bushing that holds the sway bar to the frame or was the bolt just to old?
