Anyone with a 5er that has the torsion axels should crawl under there and have a look at the mounts. If they can't do it someone they trust should, showing them the pictures that are on line. This is one heck of a safety hazard. Not sure if the TT's have this same setup but a look at those wouldn't hurt.

Unless things change I'll be back out at our storage area on Thursday and will get more pictures. The one shown is curb side front, I'll get pictures of the other three mounts and post them. I am also going to check the torque on the existing mount bolts and post those also.

I had mine fixed at the rally, they looked just like the provided pics. Leo could check the repair tags and hopefully the tech's made a comment on my repair request.

After thinking about it I am trying to figure out why the bracket has the slot instead of a hole. I was also thinking about welding the bracket to the 2"x6". That might not be good for the temper in the metal so I'll drill and bolt it like O.C. did and let it go at that.
