sway a way



avix

find out which ones you have on there, if there is more of a bracket with a bolt and a plate on the braket which is threaded then you have sway ways...

If you welded it, then you'd have to weld the bolt in too to stop the torsion leaves from moving side to side. It would however make it no longer adjustable and would be a pain should you ever want to take it apart again. If I were you, I'd just buy another adjuster and use it for parts.

no bolt, cross threaded.

Drill a size larger, re tap and install new bolt. (assuming you can't just re-tap the existing thread, and use new "stock" size bolt)

that's the way I'd do it anyway, and I'm pretty sure it's the "correct" way.

If you drill a size larger, you'll need to ream out the adjuster too for it to work. I expect you'd also need to dissassemble the beam anyway to do this.

If it's cross threaded and you retap the existing thread, then I doubt it'd hold for long. Not really worth the risk IMO.
