If you decide to not get a new bolt, I would suggest cleaning the threaded shaft and nut threads with acetone or rubbing alcohol and let dry completely. Then I would use Loctite 262 thread locker sparingly (on male thread only). You may need to use a heat gun to remove.
Edit: the prep of the threads (cleaning) is the most important part otherwise the Loctite does not work.

I'm glad it's back up and going. I told another guy that I wasn't missing out on enjoying my car this summer due to crap customer service and if I was more patient it would be sitting still.
It's a blast to drive now that its sitting a little higher off the ground as well. Those 18x10s were kissing the front fenders going over some rather minor bumps like transitions from roads to bridges and ECT. Nothing very huge but just enough of a bump to make it compress just a bit more. Now I don't wince as bad going over bumps in the road.
The Hurst shifter is a ton better than the b&m on a comfort standpoint. I'm a fairly big guy. 6' 245 and the b&m I had to really reach for the Hurst is right there easy to reach.

Thanks. I found some pics and it looks like they have some locker pre-applied to them. I guess that stuff is only single use. I Checked the 84 shop manual and they say the same abount the steering wheel nut.Replace it.
