    Universal Shock Bolt kit 31001.

    The bolt wrung off when removing the nut several years ago. At that time I tack welded a flat piece of steel to the broken stud to retain the new shock. 140,000 miles later I needed to replace the shock again. I decided to replace the bolt assemble with the 31001 kit.
    I checked on line reviews: one person said he used several drill sizes and worked up to a 5/8" bit to place the 31001 through. One said " Just grind off the head and drive it out with a punch."
    It sounded fairly easy. Grinding off the head was a nightmare. It is recessed on both sides and cannot be easily removed. I then drilled small holes around the outer edge of the old bolt, to weaken it and drive it out. THE ORIGINAL IS COUNTER SUNK IN THE MOUNT , AND IS WELDED OR PLACED IN HOT AND EXPANDED. It does not drive out!
    To remove the old bolt: I used an air powered grinder to cut the head from the back side of the bolt. Then, I drilled small holes to weaken the bolt. Next, I cut the shock side of the bolt with the grinder. A large hammer and large punch drove out most of the old bolt, but the hole was ragged and chunks of the old bolt were still welded in place. I then used the air tool with a "deburing bit" to shape the hole for the new 31001 bolt to fit properly. Even with the new bolt fitting properly flush in place, it stuck through far enough that I needed an additional HUGE washer to take up the space for the lock washer and nut to secure the 31001 bolt.
    In the end . . it worked. . .after 4 days of "before going to work" working on this.!
    Recommend: 1. Do it if you have lots of tools patience, and time. 2. Let a professional shop do this , or 3. replace the complete piece the shock bolt attaches to.

    Pros: It does replace the broken lower Shock bolt

    Cons: Extremely difficult to install
