156 front subframe bolts rounded
After a frustrating weekend's tinkering with the idea of replacing shocks, wishbones etc I've ended up having to drop the front subframe to remove the inner rear bolt (which was totally seized in the bush).
Problem is that on reassembly (with a torque wrench I might add) the front bolt on both sides (the ones right above the wishbone mounts) have both rounded off. Are the inserts accessible from anywhere? Or are they captive in the chassis/welded on?
Unless they're reasonably accessible I'm tempted to weld the front of the subframe to the chassis leg - it's a shed so no reason to worry about longevity past another couple of years. Question is, does the subframe alignment itself have any bearing on the geo? I'll already have to have the tracking done as I'm replacing the track rod ends.
