When I read this in your Project Journal I thought these were bottom mounted like a regular H-Body, and then my thought was to put a "cap" over it to add two more screws (4 per side, think of something like a rod cap or a "pillow block" and a solid rod) that idea would still work but would be more work than just welding a stop under your current crossbar, it will mean a repaint/powder coat but wolud be pretty low effort "Band-Aid" repair. I still think I would build some sort of arrangement to constrain that shaft which would be replaced with solid. You appear to have very little "Real Estate" to work with so this will be tight! Another option would be to find some larger Ineer Diameter bushings so you can use a larger cross bar. Sorry that is all I have, please keep use posetd. Harry

We can fix that, we have the technology! ! Harryavewhtboy wrote: I assure you my car will not pull the front wheels off the ground!!!
