    I'm having a little trouble cutting off the end of the stud because I already put everything back on yesterday except the wheels.. the stud is hitting the tube right now and the only thing that can get in there is the dremel drill that I have. Is there any other way that I do this without having to drop the K-member and take the header out for the 3rd time? The drill aren't working too well.. here are some pics

    Remove the stud and use a bolt.

    remove material from the tip of the stud with a die grinder or carefully with a cut-off wheel.

    i wouldent use a bolt. do whatever it takes to re-use the stud and nut.
