    Upon whellin this weekend I somehow managed to break a steering arm bolt off, and the other 2 are loose. Any suggestions? Also is there any good body replacement places out there? (Bashed the fender real good too)

    Wes (thatk30guy) told me this week how to replace the steering arm studs. He said (correct me if I'm wrong, Wes) to weld a nut to the stud real good, put the impact on it, and remove it from the knuckle.

    As for the fender, get one from JC Whitney. Don't buy GM if you're just going to bash it up again anyway.

    Yup Wes' idea is awsome... although I took mine out w/ a vise grips, an oxy-acetyl setup and a lot of muscle.
