Default reason i cant couldnt get my lca bolt out

well i finally got it out after trying for a few weeks.... this is the bolt that holds the lca to the hub.



just a little bent... guess there is a price for all this fun, i am sure mazda will ask at least 20 for this bolt too haha:gay:

Mine was like $400 to replace.
Hub, axle, that bolt, wheel, and both control arms. Lesson learned: don't hit curbes while drifting again.

I'm surprised you didn't have to cut it out in sections.
I've visited that exact bolt on three different occassions. And then I met it's brother- the same bolt that had ten PA winters on it. Never did get it out. Had to replace the assembly just get a good wheel bearing on the corner. Old northern cars are bitch to work on. - rob
