I have an 85 xtra cab 22re. I keep breaking the front axle locating pin on the drivers side leaf spring, what would keep causing this. possible over tigtening the shackle bolts??
I dont use allen heads anymore after a bad experience having half the head stuck in the spring perch of a YJ.
The Hex portion of the head snapped off, wedging itself into a cast spring perch. The rest of the bolt was complete, just missing half the head. Took 2-3 hours of drilling, yelling, an frustration to get it out.i dont see a problem with running a socket cap screw, sounds ideal for the job. what was your bad experience?
Been using them for many , many years without a problem. Secret, keep the U-bolts tight!!!!!:flipoff2:I dont use allen heads anymore after a bad experience having half the head stuck in the spring perch of a YJ.
If a hex-head bolt wont fit, I round the head on the bench grinder till it does. Vice-grips do a fine job of holding it in place while I tighten or loosen the bolt.
