    Front shock tower problems

    On my stampede 4x4 I have been having the body mounts rip out of the shock tower. It happened with my stock one, then I upgraded it to am rpm one and I didn't over tighten it or anything. It happens when I have a hard impact. Is there anything better for me to do? Can I upgrade it to aluminum so the threads won't strip as easy if at all?

    Any pics? Is it a screw falling out or something actually breaking?
    60% of the time I'm right every time.

    If the body brace are being pulled off because the impact is pulling the screws out of the tower, then use a longer screw. If you want to you could use a screw long enough to catch it with a nut on the under side of the tower. Or is something else going on

    I fixed it for now. I put longer screws because the lens there are short. But at some point I will need to put longer ones on
