02/10/2004 12:00   Suspension Bolt   [Wheels, Brakes and Suspension]

We want to remove the front suspension for cleaning and a more thorough determination as to which one is better (white or blue). However, I managed to shear the head off one of the bolts. These bolts are actually really big screws and screw directly into the chassis. I got my hands on a big drill bit and have drilled the bolt out.

The idea is to fit another big bolt right through rather than to tap a new thread. We have a suitably long and thick bolt with nut from the rear suspension.
