-I HAVE A 97 LX AND I CAN'T GET MY STABILIZER LINK BOLTS TO TIGHTEN DOWN .I'VE USED AN ALLEN WRENCH TO HOLD THE STUD ,BUT IT ONLY GOES SO FAR.

1997 Mazda Protege • 250,000 miles

The bolts will tighten to a certain extent, but then they get so tight tha t I actually stripped the allen wrench hole in the center of the stud

Are you sure that isn't as far as they should be? Are you cross threading?
