i just got a new stabilizer for my sahara. when i was putting the big bolt into the bushing i had to hit it with a hammer to get it in. well now the problem is the nut dont fit on the bolt, i even purchased a few more nuts they dont fit. i dont know what to do. do i need another bolt? and if i do where do u get them. its amazing that such a simple job turns into an on slot of problems

You learned an important lesson the hard way. Don't strike the threaded end of a bolt with a hammer if you need to spin a nut onto it. You will booger up the threads and not be able to the thread the nut on.

You could try a tap and die set and see if you can repair the threads. If not, off to find a new bolt.
