This bolt is used in the R,GS,GSA and RT for the same year.
Broke right in the center of the shock mount. Found the bolt hanging out and thought it had backed out. Can't get the shock off with 1/2 the bolt still in there Any ideas?
The factory bolt is hardness 10.9.
Thanks in advance!
Stopped at my local Fastenal and picked up 18 non galvanized 12.9 SHC versions. It was $2+ $2 extra if you only want one and figured I could help those here that are out in the boonies.

If ya need one just PM me.
I talked to the service manager at my local Dealer and he stated that they now replace all lower bolts if they remove them for any reason.
Amazing!

Update:
Heated it up drilled a hole and no the reversible bit did not bite as that was one small surprise. Easy out working nice, then only 1/4" of threads came out. It was broken in 2 places. drilled some more and easy out broke. Swing arm off and heading to machine shop on Monday.
This is a major issue with this design!
