Hi everybody!

Can someone post the dimension of a LCA bolt? The one that attaches the arm to the chasis?

I would get a proper AMK Products hardware kit. Bolts, washers, nuts. CJ Pony Parts has them (for instance), Item #F1111 for less than twenty bucks.

1/2-20 X 3 1/4. Note that it's a shoulder bolt with only the portion that protrudes from the LCA bushing being threaded. Bear in mind that that bolt is under a significant amount of both shear and torsional stress.

I'm not digging through my stack of crap but I'm pretty sure they're grade 8.

Hi magnus. I donīt care about originality in this, Its just that I dont have the originals because the car came dissasembled/without sway bar. I need to assembly the front end tomorrow, and the new sway bar I have, came without those... Thats why I need diameter, lenght and grade, to get them on the local bolt store. Thanks to your feedback, yesterdey I got the LCA ones.

Thanks

It's a 3/8's bolt with corresponding nut. Long enough to go through. Maybe a lock washer or nylok nut.
Close enough for what you've got going on. Quick and cheap, too. =)

Thanks for your reply! Quick, yes, cheap, nope! =)
So, I will put some 3/8 bolts to temporarily put the sway bar in place, will order correct ones and then, change one at the time...
