    12 Bolt owners.. Please read.

    Today I snapped my Spohn Torque Arm mounting plate that connects the torque arm to the rear end. I called up Spohn and they said I SHOULD have been informed (i wasnt) at the time that I purchased the torque arm that if it was to be paired up with a 12 bolt rear end that does not utilize the factory style "through bolts" to connect the torque arm to the rear end. Moser 12 bolt rear ends utilize a threaded bolt hole that has been proven to have bolt retention issues when used with aftermarket torque arms. If you have this particular rear axle, understand that aftermarket torque arm companies are aware of this and you WILL NOT get a replacement torque arm if this happens to you. Be sure to do a regular inspection on these torque arm bolt so you do not end up in the same boat as me.

    well if it happens to me I'll tell them, "uh yeah i still have my 10 bolt, don't know why it broke"

    did it only break because the bolts came loose?
