I just replaced my left rear strut and while tightening the top hat nuts I snapped off the nut and last inch of the stud. Do you think it's ok to leave it with just the two nuts?

Id trust it enough to go buy a new top hat and drive straight home....

14 ft pounds. tighten and then like a nudge. All they do is keep the strut from falling off while you're flying through the air like Ken Block

Aren't those bolts replaceable? Like you can just hammer it out and pop in a new one, like lug studs

I thought they were. I'm cheap and would go that route. Hell, if the Suby dealer didn't have them in stock, I'd just order it. Then put in a random bolt/washer/nut to hold it in place.

Oh so then my impact gun officially goes from unnecessary compensation to blatant overkill :rotflmao:
