    Broken K frame bolt removal HELP!

    I thought about that but I don't think I can get my flux welder up in there..Plus when I was using the torch I may have accidently fused the bolt threads and the frame threads together. The bolt is broken off into the frame there's no part of the bolt that sits above the surface its all way down...

    UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!! I found out the cause of that insidious noise,,, There was a bit of excess steel hanging over the edge of my K frame just general factory assembly quality rough edges and it was just enough to hit my torsion bar adjuster bolt. If you look at the pic that tiny bare metal spot...

    Well, I did raise the suspension a bit and it did aliviate the car bottoming out and I bought new brake pads as im suspecting it may possible thats the problem. At least I hope so...I will post the results after I put them on.

    Shocks are stock oem type. I had everything loose and hanging when the suspension was assembled. Of course the shop I took it to was to finish the suspension setbup along with alignment.

    You were correct with the suspension bottoming out. I brought her up a turn and a half on the adjustment bolts and she rides real nice.. now to nail down the noise..small victories ✌️

    Yes I agree it does not appear to be the strut rods. I have not checked the brakes. I did not notice the suspension bottoming out

    I'll take pics of my suspension when I get home. Yes the LCA pivots were tightened at ride height. I did notice this...bouncing the suspension doesn't seem to create the squeek however braking say from 10mph does. To me, it seems more pronounced on the p side but it's definitely on both sides

    The strut rods are brand new. I took them off tonight inspected everything reinstalled them making god damn sure they were installed properly. Messed with the pivit angle several times and still have the same issue..Sooo I am out of ideas here.

    The suspension was rebuilt by myself at the same time. And actually following the instructions from ya'll here. lol The guy that did do my alignment did use molly grease.

    I think I understand. Yeah I am going to go through and watch the travel of the suspension and see how its acting. I do believe it is the orientation of the joints that are giving me problems
