I was in the process of changing the front hub bearings on our 2003 Chevy Suburban 1500 when something bad happened. While I was torquing the one of the three hub bearing bolts (133 lb-ft) the head of the bolt was stripped, and now it cannot be tightened or loosened. I don't know how close the bolt was to the recommended torque value when things went south so I want to remove the bolt and replace it with a good one. The bolt head is (was) 15 mm. Has anyone else experienced this and if so how did you fix it? We would like to get this vehicle up and running, soon.
