My motor mount bolt cross threaded too luckily the rest are in fine and it's almost all the way in so I left it with no problem. One day I'll retread it

I used a combo of the factory studs (helps on install) and the bolts that came with the kooks. I've never had one loosen

I'd use the stud and nut first. Those bolts are made to be used with clips

I remember a few of my clips were a PITA to put on. I used a small dab of RTV to "glue" the clip on my finger tip. Then I positioned it in place and pushed it on with a screwdriver in my other hand. May work for you too......

I would only do that if you're only placing the mount on the (chassis side) stud but not tightening down the nut. Otherwise you're asking for more problems.

alright boys, ive run into a bit of trouble.
1: the steering wheel shaft wont connect up on both side. The steering wheel locked, so (i think) theres no way it could of moved, but the notches just dont match up :/ The only thing i can think is that the u-joint at the bottom end moved somehow?
2: the motor mounts would click into there mounting. There kind of off, i was just going to get the car on flat land again and loosen the top bolt on both sides and hope to god that when i jack the engine up again, theyll click back in. Thoughts?

kind of screwed here with the steering wheel shaft lol it looks like the angle are good tho, but it looks like the notches literally moved on the bottom end or some shit. thanks guys

Lol why is it a dis aster waiting to happen? Honestly idk if it's even cross threaded, bolt just looks about a half inch too long. By not all the way in I mean literally a half inch tops. It's pretty snug, doubt it'll go anywhere

1. Are you sure youre putting the steering shaft in correctly? It is possible to put it in backwards
2. Not sure what you mean about the mounts, would need pictures.

1. I'm pretty sure I am, I left the u-joint connected on one side and the other side the u-joint is connected to the car
2. Yeah I figured lol I'll take some tomarrow

I dont get what you are asking about the motor mounts but for the steering shaft did you possibly pull on and of.your rotors or hub assembly and turn them. Even though your steering wheel is locked the bottom side isn't.

Unbolt the bottom two bolts for the motor mounts so they can move, lower the engine onto the stud (u have the stock mounts right?), then, if the bottom two holes for the mounts dont line up, put a screwdriver in the hole and line them up
