    Alright imma cut to the chase so i managed to basically break one of the welded nuts that hold one of the driver side bushing completely off now im stuck with a huge whole.

    I'm guessing the whole bracket that the steering rack bolts on to will have to be removed breaking the factory welds then weld the nut back in place and then re weld the bracket back.

    Now my question do you know of any good shops you can recommend that can weld and can fix this and how much would the repairs be?

    And also would i be even able to drive my car carefully to a shop to get the repairs done with only one bushing on or should i just tow it.

    Really any helpful advice would be appreciated.

    Im going to try and post pics later today.

    tow it to be safe. pretty much why i don't turn a wrench. other folks are some much better at it. good luck, it's nice upgrade when it's finished.

    might be easier... less trouble down the road to find a used subframe and just swap it over.

    Put it back together and limp to AllPro. I can't believe that happened.
