    subframe lockdown bolt install issues need some help please

    hey guys so heres im issue went to install the subframe lock down bolts on my 04 wrx
    the nut on the other side broke off the welds so now it just spins it wont tighten down and
    it wont loosen up either,argh so frustrated,so now ive come to the conclusion that i need to drill
    into my trunk in order to access the nut in order to get this sob tightened down

    i bought the perrin kit i tried contacting them several times and they wont email me back
    and i tried the live chat the guy said ya ill send you a pic of where to drill this was last week
    still no picture of where to drill so after waiting and no response i thought id come here


    so i was wondering if anybody on here had a picture of where i would need to drill in my trunk in order
    to access this nut so i may tighten the subframe lockdown bolt
    thank you
    sincerely Dakota

    Sorry to hear of the failure. This may help.
    Q about rear subframe locking bolt - NASIOC

    I bought some, then after installing them, I had second thoughts because I did not believe that those welded nuts on the inside were meant to take the stress. I believe that they are only there for some part of the car's manufacturing process, not to be stressed with the suspension...
