|Pink_Percy||I went larger then an M10 bolt on mine. I replaced it with a 1/2" bolt. I cut a open end wrench in half so I can slip into the back side of the bracket and hold it on the nut when I tightened the bolt. I gorilla fisted the bolt so not sure what its torqued at. Tight.|

|nicodemus||Also, on an 04 is it 55 ft/lbs or 45 ft/lbs for torque on that?|

Thanks, just wanted to make sure what I'm seeing is abnormal!
Think I'll replace the bushing while I've got it off... new bushing and bolt. Thanks so much for the exact specs on the bolts too!
Any tips on replacing the nut in the back and actually getting something on it to tighten it?

|Pink_Percy||Mine did the same thing. I bought a bigger bolt, drilled the bracket and the bushing sleeve to fit the larger bolt and waalaa, problem solved.|

Track Bar Play? (With video)
I know this has been so hashed... whew... anyway.
So, despite my searching I've not really found a video that tells me for sure what to be looking for in trackbar play. (I know there shouldn't be any, but its a rubber bushing it can't be 100% still when turning the wheel right?)
Anyway, so I recorded a (horrible) video that shows how much 'play' my trackbar has on the axle end. Could anyone take a gander and tell me if this is normal / too much / omg you're gonna die in a big fire?
Thanks so much!
