Front Trac bar axle mount question
I'm trying to replace my front trac bar with an adjustable one, which is going ok. I was able to get the stock front trac off with only a minor issue. The mount where the bar meets the front axel is rather rusted (thank you new england road salt), and I'm lucky it came off. It's one of those that is buried in some housing with a tab. It rotated around until it stopped and I was able to get the bolt free. I was rather worried it would break, as seen by other people.
Since I have the bolt out, it is rather difficult to get to turn through the nut/tab combo. I'd rather replace it with something functional that I'll be able to get off in the future and not worry.
Has any had this issue before? Is it possible to just get a nut that fits it and use that? I feel like i'd be able to get part of a wrench in there to keep it steady while I torque it down to spec.
If I wind up keeping it, is there anything to do to make it easier to move? just add some anti-loc or something like that?
