Anyone else break the post that attached to airbox b58?

So today was trying to pop my airbox out to install my downpipe, and my post broke right off from the frame rail that attached to the bottom half of the airbox. Was wondering if anyone else had the same issue and how did you fix.

Ahah mine came off entirely, the whole threaded bolt with it. I was just wondering how much play there'll be with the air box without that one post...looking to go stage 2 here soon so may even go for a turner motorsports intake that looks like mounts on to other parts of the frame.

Oo yea we are talking about the same part...the weld on mine came completely undone though, like completely ripped off. Not sure if the previous owner had done something to the air box or I just got unlucky. The metal part the ball joint actually screws onto came off with the air box.
