Default I think I messed up

2011 sport. In process of doing a body lift. As I was doing the rear cab bolts, I believe I stripped the bolts. I held the bottom bushing and a friend impacted. Once it got to a certain point, all the bolt did was spin. It felt tight. I get that pop nose whenever the truck moves over a bump. Idk where to go from here. Any advice is appreciated.

Were you able to torque the bolts to the required torque spec? Or was it just still spinning in the bushing?

Sounds like it could be stripped, I'd pull it out and check the threads.

If they're stripped, you can either use a thread repair tool or just buy a new bolt.

Nah, it's just a bolt, just make sure you bring it with you to buy the same size.
