Front axle pinch bolt snapped?
I noticed the ride just didn't feel right up front, a slight shimmy or shake. Took a look-see and found the front axle pinch bolt head was gone. The other half of the bolt is still in there and threaded out the other side so somehow this bolt snapped in half. Could it have been over-tightened and snapped when hitting a bump?
I'm hoping someone can school me on what happened here and what I can do to fix it. I'm thinking I can get the bolt out ok, and assuming there's threads, a new bolt will suffice, but, I'm concerned what caused it to snap as I'd really rather it didn't happen again.
