AAL centering pin size?

So I got some AAL but they didn't come with the centering pins so I need to get a new one. Is the size 3/8"diameter by 4.5"? Here's the link to the one I think I need lol http://store.summitracing.com/egnsea...DS=1&N=700+115

I saw your post in Hillyards thread. I'm gonna go to Lowe's tonight and see what they have, thanks man. I measure the hole on my AAL and its 7/16" so 5/16 or 3/8 should be what I want. The centering pin is 4.5" long so that should be what I want.

I'm going to use a Grade 5 or 8, gotta see what they have. I'll most likely use 8, better safe than sorry.

its a centering pin. all the stress is held by the grade 5 and/or grade 8 Ubolts

if the pin did not exist and you clamped it down with the u bolts it wouldnt move.
