Stripped T-bar bolts....

Wellllll....I stripped the bolts on the T-bars yesterday while cranking them, I only got about 5-6 turns out of the drivers side and about 3 on the passenger side. I went to my local stealership to get a price or a size. They would have to order it nor did they have a size, and I'm trying to finish this today.

Basically, I will need a bolt size/thread/etc of this bolt so I can remove and replace it.

Thanks!

Believe it to be the same as the body bolts, M12x1.50...but in your location, believe it to be 85mm in length. Fully threaded is required and of high strength is required. Lower strength could lead to stripped threads and a lowered truck. lol.

Believe I ran 90mm or 100mm bolts to make do til I could swap in the coil-overs because the t-bars were so sagged.

Should be an easy and quick fix.

If needed, I've got stock t-bar adjustment bolts as well as the nuts they fit into. Just shoot a PM and I'll send 'em your way.
