    I'm planning on leaving the front stabilizer (sway) bar off, but I do still need the bolts for the reservoir mounting plate for the shocks. However, I managed to strip one of the bolts and muck up the hole a bit as well. I need to get back under the truck to assess what can be done but I wanted to check here first to see if anyone had any ideas here first. Just to be clear, it's one of the two bolts that connect to the frame, not the one going into the LCA.

    If the bolt hole is compromised, tap and die insert?

    That's my first inclination, but I don't have one yet, so I wasn't sure if there was a block or something in the frame that the bolt is going into that could be replaced cheaper.
