    That’s a good suggestion. Don’t trust my memory on this, but IIRC the torque spec is something like 58#, which exceeds the nominal torque rating for a metric 10.9 in that size. When I was installing my lift I read that torque spec several times because it was so high.

    In the photo, looking at the threads into which the missing bolts would have been attached, the threads have an even coat of rust on them, suggesting to me that this axle was disconnected for some time, and did not 'recently' snap or become disconnected in some other way.

    I had the same thought but there is no way that axle would have stayed in that position, The wheel would have been spinning it as the vehicle was driven. alot of luck on this one. hopefully some new hardware and down the road it go's!
