I just got new sway bar end links, as i left the 4 bolts that hold the sway bar on the frame screwed in so i wont lose them, some how both bottom bolts stripped while trying to install the sway bar back on. They wont go more then 1/4th inch and im so pissed off. Any remedies please? Even with 600ln coils n radflos the sway from the front while driving is abit much for daily use. If i cant fix it ill just have to live with it but is there any way to fix this?? Its pretty much a welded on nut.

Tap/die set. Run a die over the bolt to clean the threads.

I'm sure there are more sizes... but pretty much everything on the truck I've hit is either 10mm, 12mm, 15mm, or 17mm.
