I used all 1/2" grade 8. Don't know the size of holes Jacob made in his brackets but the c/os need 1/2". I think I used some 2" and some 1" with lots of washers.

dude when i originally made these, i was told that fox coilovers were 1.5" inches in width with the misalignment spacers. and thats what mine are. so i made them 1-5/8" in width to allow for a little bit of play then you can crank down on them and lose that 1/8". anyway, putting caseys on the other day, i found out that yalls new fox's are 1-1/4". so we had to put 2 washers on each side of the misalignment spacers. kinda sucked but it worked...

HOW MUCH!?!!? Shouldn't be more than $10. My entire Superlift bolt kit was about $25....all were grade8 and it was probably somewhere near 40 fasteners.
