Bolt size for Radius Arms and Rear trailing arms

Do you have the size for the bolts that attach the radius arms to the axle ( through the busing ) as well as the ones for the Rear trailing arms
Does 5/8 3.5" for the front and 4" for the rear sounds like it?

Thanks

They are 16mm technically but 5/8 is just fine. The lenth sounds right. I can take a measure if you want.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Thanks for the info, no don't go into any trouble meassuring, worse case scenario I will have some extra bolts.

I assume GRADE 8? zinc? SS?

Are they thraded through or they have like 2" of smooth area?

Thanks again

No worries. They are plain shanked as the lenth dictates. Definitely grade 8. If you go to True Value or similar store you can get the pretty Zinc grade 8 bolts. I think nylocks are a nice upgrade too while your at it. New washers don't hurt either.

Why not use factory bolts? I am sure roverguy or someone else who parts things out will have a set laying around for cheap.
