Has anyone had issues with the bushings in the ends of the rack coming out? These are the bushings that support each end of the rack inside the boot. On my old '86, one of those broke the snap ring that holds the bushing in place. On my current '86, same thing happened. FWIW- I'd purchased that car new and it broke at less than 50k miles.

I've drilled and tapped the case so that I could insert three small allen head set screws to hold the bushings in. Little dab of Red Loctite to keep the set screws from backing out.

Anyone else have this problem in the past? Or ideas to cure the problem. Or is it just me and 86 coupes?
