Stripped torsion bar adjusting bolt

One side of the adjusting bolts stripped while adjusting height. Fortunately I had a longer bolt from Applied GMC in my spares. The bolt is what stripped and the nut while not the best will live on. A tap cleaned up the the threads in the nut pretty well. I did shorten the new bolt to match the original.
