Slightly used front subframe mounts....

I did the front subrame mounts today per Mike D's instructions (thanks Mike). It went real smooth, except my driver's rear bolt broke and the retaining-threaded clip with a piece of the bolt was just sitting there in its receptacle.
I had to bend the body/frame of the car in order to a wiggle and pry the stub out of there. HUGE PITA!!!
Enclosed is a pic of one of the mounts. It self-disintegrated upon removal.

Did you take a good look at the frame rail where the steering box mounts while you were there?
