I undid all mine and those that wouldn't come off, I ground the heads off then removed the rear rusted up fastener. I then replaced them all the broken ones with new jacknuts (which you can buy from the dealer or elsewhere) on the rear and used new bolts with some copper grease. I don't tend to overtighten them now and grease them every time I use them. No problems! :) David.
