Learned 2 important lessons today.

One was to ALWAYS make sure you install the short bolts (not the longer ones) back in the front inner fenders around the wheel well lip. This avoids the bolt poking out into the exterior sheetmetal and having 5 nice dimples on your fender.

Lesson number two is to NEVER hammer a threaded steering component out of a steering part by using the threaded part as the point of impact - no matter what your current plans are. You never know when you might need that part in an emergency.
