    Try going to a local Cat dealer and buying bolts.

    Their hardware is stamped grade 8 but most are a good deal stronger.

    Is your jeep just that heavy to cause that or is there a commonly known cause?

    It’s a common issue with the evo lever.

    WTF? Broke another??

    I should note that it’s only been an issue on 2012-up JKs. Moby and anyone I know with an older JK has not had this problem.

    Yeah I was thinking that as I was trying to get the damn control arm out. I didn’t think you were breaking them. The shitty part is the flange nut is seized in the broken bolt.

    Would putting a stronger bolt be a good idea or do you think it would damage the mounts or the arm. My brother works for a bolt manufacturer that does a lot of high strength stuff of all sizes. I can see if he can get something with more sheer strength.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
