Start spraying your bolts now! I just took mine off half an hour ago and broke 5 out of the 6 bolts. . Huge pain.

The penetrating lube of your choice. PB Blaster is good.

A set of extractors and a powerful drill are good investments for working on your 90.

Sears is fine. They're just kinda costly because they're high-grade metal.

You have to make a call on each fastener, sometimes you want to extract, sometimes you just want to drill out out as much as possible and then re-tap.

Both methods require pretty good centering while you drill. Obviously starting small and working up works the best.

Fortunately, many places on the bottom of the plate, if you totally screw up the bolt and its captive nut, you can just drill it all out and use a standard bolt and nut. And I think the anti-roll bar mount doesn't have captive fasteners at all (but I forget exactly). The very worst are the ones that go into the bottom of the crossmember. Access is pretty bad, and so is the rust.

Or you know, cut the captive bit off and weld on a new nut.

One correction- not if, but when you break one off, and rest assured, it will be the ones in the rear crossmember.
Ron- I'll take the 3 stock ones if they aren't too far gone, as I am getting a pile to take to the galv'r- make a deal....

Not at all hard to get ahold of.
Call the shop, open 5 days a week
Email, checked 5 or 8 times a day

I don't use the PMs on this board.

If you want it shipped then I'll ship it and Holly will get a CC from you for shipping.
If you need to know what the shipping will cost on your free part, then you'd need to do that on your own. I'm not goign to spend time doing a shipping quote for something I am giving away.
