Grabbed the wrong trigger on the impact and snapped off one of the two small (12mm?) studs on one side of the rear subframe where the diff mount bolts up. It looks like they are there for positioning the differential mount before you lock it in place with the single bigger bolt (17mm I think).
Do I need to drop the subframe and replace that stud or can I get away with one of the two small bolts on one side?
Only one mistake today in ~10 hours of wrenching; I'm pretty happy with myself otherwise!

IMHO, don't worry about thoses. As long as the large center nut is there (17mm IIRC). The small ones have not been on mine for years.
