    My driver side friggin broke going over a simple obsticle, anybody else had issues with them? Should I replace them with the same, or go back to non greasable hardened bolts?

    Find out what grade they are (check the head on the other bolt) and we'll work from there.

    Stephen, the other bolt is Grade 8 according to the head. I guess I'll be ordering a new one, bushing, and sleeve. Maybe 2, so I have a spare. Or I'll hold off until I can afford the high steer from you also! The stock one should last me at least that long, not like I go wheeling every weekend...

    What do the markings on the other head look like? We switched hardware suppliers a while back to get some more reliable quality for our bolts, I'm wondering which brand it is.
    Let us know, we'll throw a new bolt (or pair maybe) in on your next order.
    The other one will probably last forever since it doesn't have the steering pushing and pulling on it all the time.

    Stephen, it has raised hash marks and what looks like a "Y" on it. Good to know about the other bolt though!

    Stephen,

    Just ordered some new stuff, tie rod, ends, zero rate kit, I'll be looking for those bolts in the package!
