    Don't know if it helps but if you look at post #2453 on tufftys "minor modding thread" it might be useful to you. He puts a helicoil insert in.

    Helicoil insert is what you need mate, it sounds like the dogbone mount threads in your box have gone.

    It's a very easy job, took me about 20 minutes to do mine, helicoil kit was about £20 and you just need to jack the front up high enough to get under there with a drill.
