    Maybe - it's kinda strange that OP got 80% of the way before buggering the threads so bad that he couldn't go farther. If the threads are buggered 75% of the way in and really buggered the last 5% then running a tap through might not be the right fix and OP may just end up pulling all the remaining threads out when torquing the bolt. OP might have to drill out and tap to the next larger size and use a larger fastener or a Keensert.

    That's what I'm concerned about too.

    Is a Keensert the same as a helicoil? And would I be able to install one without needing to drop the subframe?

    it's a long ass bolt. you should have plenty of threads to chase unless you tried 5 times crossthreading every time.

    Yes, a Keensert is a helicoil. You might be able to drill and tap the hole and install a helicoil but, if I remember properly, it would be tight quarters.
