stripped or no threads?
It is a mounting plate taking the place of the stock bushing bracket, which the kit's actual bracket then bolts to. That is the piece with a stripped thread. I have contacted Hotchkis and they're sending me a replacement. :chug:You're not screwing into the bracket, you're screwing through the bracket into the floor of the car. The hole on the car is the one thats screwed up.(without looking at your car I am almost certain this is the case) The screw holes to attach the bracket on the rear of my car were a bitch too, I had to be extremely careful not to strip that hole or break the bolt in it because I don't even know how to access that on the other side. Also did you have to drop the exhaust to get the rear bar out?
