i bought new bolts when i put on my front strut tower bar and ended up stripping the bolts, which i only noticed til now because i just lowered my car. my question if i buy new struts, do they come with the strut bolts or is that a seperate part. if i'm gonna take all that **** off again, i minus well replace the struts with some tokicos since my stock ones are shot anyway

i think bolts used on our cars are made of plastic or lead or something. I've already broken two bolts on this car. My alternator tensioning bolt and a bolt for my trunk hinge. that one was actually a stud welded to the hinge itself, requiring a drill, patience, new hardware, and a lot of cussing to fix. >:-(

my friend stripped out his strut mount bolts in the front when installing his Strut bar

Basically- I grinded the stripped ones off and he bough new bolts...problem solved

The funny thing is his car is a 93' ...is this a 93 problem

Mine is 94 and haven't had a stripped bolt yet :crossfingers:
