    You may have to retap your lower arm where the bolt goes into the arm or helicoil it but if none off them work it’s a new arm

    Don't most drop links has a torx bit in the end that you have to hold while you tighten the bolt? just like a ball joint.

    These kind? Seems that 1 side needs to be help with an allen/torx to tighten the nut, and the other side would just be a nut and bolt?
