Hen avenger, what grade of stainless hardware did you use was it grade 5 or 8?
Just sold my 01 2500 which had the same problem. The 04 2500 HD I just bought has the same problem, back bolts on both sides. The passenger side was easy. The driver's side required removing all the body bolts underneath the cab and the radiator support bolts along with the driver's side inner fenderwell. Release the slip yoke for the steering column and lift the body on the driver's side as high as it will allow without breaking anything. This height is needed to get the right angle air drill with shortened drill bits to clear the firewall and get a straight shot at that bolt. If you do not have the tools or ability to tackle this on your own, $300.00 from a dealer is not bad. Took me the better part of the day to do both sides and do it right. ARP makes studs that I will be using to tackle the 04 when I can get to it. Seems as though they have a higher tensile strength, from what I've been told, and should not break the way the bolts do. Good luck with your repair.
