Customer Question

Hey there,
Had to grind the back two power steering box bolts on the outside of the chassis to remove the box.
Back two bolts had a removable nut on both ends and were spinning when ratchet applied.
I thought I would be able to knock the bolts out and replace them with new ones as the threads were damaged and hard to remove the nuts.
The nuts on the box side (back)could not be removed. So I grinded em off.
The back bolts are held in the chassis and spinning. They are now to short on the power steering box side due to the grinding.
How do I get them out to replace with new ones.

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

The quickest way is to torch them out if you have access to an acytelene torch. Otherwise, you will need to drill them out
