1 '' body lift

Im gonna do the 1'' body lift on my truck but before I start I would like to get the correct bolt sizes, because it looked like there was two different sets of measurments and then one was changed? Also do these bolts need to be grade 3,5, or 8 and do they need to be fully threaded. And if there is any special kind of nut I need to get to bolt it all teogeath

Grade 8 nuts to go along with grade 8 bolts. Only the last couple inches need to be threaded. Get a Torx "star" bit that's the absolute correct size, and remove a bed bolt for comparison.

Why just 1" b/l?

grade 10.9. std grade 8 = metric grade 10.9. std grade 5 = metric grade 8.8. On my brother's '01 xcab, we ordered the sizes specified in that 1"body lift thread. I think we changed things up....used 100mm on the core support. And we reused the rear cab bolts and put them in the front cab bolts. They don't have to be fully threaded. Cost was like $35 for the bolts, and $25 for the spacers.

1" BL, torsion crank, and 32s....

these numbers are ~30mm longer than the stockers.
dont forget washers. i used 1/2" washers, they are cheaper. fender washers in the bed.

so will these be the bolt sizes that i need to complet the lift?
I chose the 1'' because i dont like the way the 3'' looks and i dont have money for bigger tires.

those lengths are correct to complete the lift. Sportztrailers I believe was the seller of the blocks.
