First off I got a Canadian car and all the control, and trailing arm bolts were meteric 18mm I think, I don't know if thats a coincidence or not. All the bolts and nuts look about the same size, are they? Even for the front and back? I need to get all new bolts and nuts

all the control arms bolts are 18 mm.. front and back .. most of the suspension is 18 but not all the ball joint nuts are different along with the tie rods and show on.. Nothing less than grade 8 should be used.. Factory bolts are like grade 10 and 11 ususally

All of the rear upper and lower trailering arm bolts are the same length and size!! Up front the uppers on both sides have the same size and length of bolt, but the lowers have 2 different lengths, they are also the same size.


Size meaning 18 mm! ;)

:biggrin:
