Bent my rear sub frame
I'm FU**ING PISSED. I was torquing down my rear diff to sub frame bolts and set my snap on wrench to 125 ft lbs, As I was torquing it would get close to the torque, then keep going, it felt odd, but not overly tight. Finally I checked up at the top of the bolt, and the whole area around the bolt and the bolt itself is sunk down 1/4" in a bent bowl down into the sub frame. I feel like now I'll need to get another one...it just never fails with these cars, go to fix one thing, destroy another.
