so i bit into the grade 8 replacement craze when i first did my lift, now i am doing the evo DL flip and putting a stock track bar in there. I no longer have the original bolts and i called the dealer ship to see what size they were they told me M14x1.5x70 but didnt have a grade speck. Gonna run over to lowes to see if i can pick up those bolts but was just curious what grade to get as well as should i get nylock nuts???

no need to try to explain torque specs, i understand fastener strength shizzzz i just need to know the grade of the bolt.

the internet is so cluttered with the grade 8 larger upgrade kits it's ridiculous, so hard to find even what the OEM stuff is.

I went to the dealer and picked up replacement bolts for my rear track bar and shocks and did not have to worry about getting the right bolt. Sometimes factory is best. Again just my :twocents:

I used a Lowe's grade 8 bolt in my rear track bar lower mount and it lasted about 6 months and needed to replace it with factory. Sometimes cheaper is not always better.

As for the Nylock bolts you may have a hard time torqueing it down. I believe the axle mounting bolt uses a flange nut but I am not 100% certain. Again I have tried using no OEM bolts and did not have any luck.

ah good point i didnt think about the nylock messing with the torque

If it was the rear I would say do not worry about it but the front is where you can introduce death wobble. Again this is just my opinion.

Lowes, Home Depot, and even True Value didn't have them when I looked. Quadratec has in a pinch.

Do not every buy Home Depot or Lowe's bulk hardware for anything. It's all total garbage. I can't tell you how many strips, popped heads, etc that crap'll lead to.

Unless your dead set on oem bolts, check Marshalls hardware off miramar/production road. They carry pretty much everything under the sun with regards to nuts bolts sae/metric. Prices are good. Check their website, the store's like a walk in mcmaster carr. Just picked up some misc 1/2-20 grade 8 stuff the other day.

So Im going to need new rear track bar bolts, probably top and bottom but definitely bottom, so is my easiest, best and safest bet the dealership?

You can also find replacement bolts at Fastenal. If you have one local to you, just stop by with what you've got and they will match it and get you what you need. Otherwise, your dealership or any OE online parts store will have them too. I'm pretty sure the OE part number for the bolts are 06104263AA and they should come as a pair. If you need the nuts/flagged nut as well, they are sold separately and as different part numbers.

Fastenal is a sweet store. I know poison spyder gets their hardware from them. I have one almost next to where I work and they have basically any replacement hardware you could want, only problem is you leave with more than you planned to. :D

Okay thanks, When I do this I will be on a time constraint and can only work on it at night, and the store closes at 5 and Ill need to cut my old bolt off. Does anyone know the exact bolt I will need if I go to Fastenal? If not I might just save the headache of getting the wrong bolt and go to the dealership.
