Hey Guys, Does any one have the factory mounting insert/bracket that goes in to the lower rear control arms
the sway bar attaches to? I broke the bolts off one  of mine while removing  my sway bar. I drilled them out and retapped them but I don't think the threads are substantial enough hold. Its a 73 SS if that makes a difference.
Thanks in advance!

No difference if its an SS or monte or cutlass, etc. If you broke one of the vertical bolts that hold the bar onto the insert, put a nut and lock washer on rear side. If you broke of the side bolts, Id drill it out to fit a grade 8 bolt and just tack a short sleeve in the center of the "U". That way you can crank down on the bolts.

Quick fix.

You can order that insert new. Limey knows the GM part number and how to order it

And order the bolts with it. Ours are discontinued. The ones you can order now use metric bolts.

GM PARTS DIRECT discontinued that from there site Its Unavailable I found a set for him from a Friend in Florida But with everyone being out of work the price didn't work for Him...... I even offered when I get off my crutches I would give him one that I have when I switch to my Boxed arms ( they wont use the inserts ) Said no ...So I guess he is gonna try and make his work

I sent him a PM. I have a set of the rear control arms complete with poly graphite bushings . I removed the set over the Christmas holidays.

I did not apply a price in the PM ...but offered sending a picture if interested.

He's has not responded.

Don't know if he just decided to go a completely different direction.

Or even use a cut off wheel and cut the nuts off. Then tack weld new ones on. Very easy to correct this issue.
