front swaybar brackets rotting out... advice?

Postby wannabe toms racer » Tue Mar 19, 2013 7:25 pm

So the weather has been murdering the metal underneath my swaybar mount brackets
Should I just get it over with n cut out the area n make a plate wit a welded nut on it or is there an easier way...?
Ive been dreading this but the pass side is completely detatched so I guess I gotta do sumthin bout it.
Think it might be possible to move the brackets in or out slightly n jus relocate the nut ? :shrug:
Idk. Any ideas? :D

ran into this on one of mine. I plan on having a junk yard cut off some GTS mouting points and weld them up on mine. Mine are gone gone though

search. it's been discussed. I'd get a professional to fix it.

If you want to make it easier on them see if you can get someone who is parting out an alltrac that has good mounts to cut the panels out for you.

The shop I had do mine fabricated both mounts from scratch.
