A-Frame Ball Joint Fulcrum Bracket Bolts


Recommended Posts

I've replaced the ball joint on my rear A-frame today, but when tightening the 2x long bolts that hold the fulcrum bracket, I managed to strip the threads from the nuts :(

The haynes manual says that they should be torqued to 176nm, but striped the nuts trying to get to this. Can anyone confirm if this is correct?

Its now left me in another situation of not having any other 1/2" UNF nyloc nuts to replace them with. Does anyone know of any shops local to the West Lothian area that might stock them?

Many thanks

Thanks for the replies

In the diagram linked, it's the nuts as item 19 I've completely stripped the threads out of. Bolts seem ok, but won't know until I try some new nuts

I've just come across this on the forum


Same symptoms as me, but the replies then suggested it should be fine to 115nm
