    Chilcotin Upper Shock Bolt

    Snapped the bolt, sheared just where the thread ends. Lucky that everything held together and only discovered back at the car park when I noticed the bolt hand backed out.

    I was wondering if this has been a common issue?

    I bent mine pretty bad. Opted to buy the new linkage with the shorter bolt. I think a few other guys on here have broken or bent them pretty bad. Check the thread about the new 3d rockers that's on here.

    That is why knolly went 3d rocker. They actually use a very high quality bolt bit it is long and only 6mm. 3d is the way to go and the way it should have been originally imho
