Rear shocker and verticle link

I'm replacing my rear shockers, I've got the old ones off, but on one of the vertical links, the thread for the nut holding the lower end of the shocker, looks in a poor state I'm not sure it will take the 28lb minimum torque required.  Is it wise to re-tap it? Or am I looking at a new vertical link?

I had a herald years ago that had a similar issue. The problem was "solved" by drilling and a splitpin (before my ownership)

If a difficult to source, you may be able to file it round and retap the next smaller thread, but a new or good used one is the best solution. Guessing non roto which should be common enough.

re threaded ours with a metric  !!!    nut and washer ,  was ok for 12 years and now its some else's problem

 

the right way is a replacement  but the nut doesnt take much load ,  most is in the vertical plane

       really it just stops the bush leaving the post
