my alternator works fine but the today I just found out that the bottom alternator bolts are broken. The heads of the bolts broke off wile i was driving to school. By the way those bolts are about 5 months old from auto zone. what should I do replace them with arp bolts or is that over kill. Oh yeah, how am I going to get the blots studs out of the alternator bracket. Any ideas.

That is a recurring problem with Z car alternator mounts. I have always felt that the two bolt design is troublesome at best.
The easiest thing to do is just drill the bracket all the way through so that you can just pass one long bolt through. That way you have only one bolt when mounting up or tightening the alternator. It makes things much easier.
