Junkyard is more then likely your best bet. Or maybe some place like Fastenal.

They are a specialty "fastener" company. Their stores just have buckets of various types of nuts and bolts of all sorts.

nope truck needs to go lol
the more i want my trans am (i drove one the other day as well) the more i could care less about getting rid of the truck

when i do buy a truck again, it will likely be a newer taco that actually has some good power to it lol

can't get grade 8 in metric.... you can get grade 10.9 which is the metric equivilent of grade 8. lol.


Ty....take off one of your torsion bar cover bolts. The 4 that hold the bar to the frame are the same bolts as the upper torsion bar cover bolts. Match it up at True Value, Ace hardware, Home Depot, Lowes, etc... I find vatozone sucks for just about everything except tacky stick on accessories. I'm leaning towards saying they are M10 x 1.25 x xxmm long.

I didn't even think about them being metric

I ditched my sway bars so long ago, I wouldn't remember what they looked like

But either way, Home depot, lowes, Ace all have any bolt you could need.

go to ace hardware on lone mountain and decatur. they have 8.8 or 10.8 in metric. and would have the bolt. if you need to borrow the bolt to see which one it is i have them off my truck right now sitting in my garage.

and btw wtf your ditching the truck??? you made a freakin website for 4x4 and now leaving the community???
