    various nuts and bolts on a k5? I might have lost some (I can't find quite a few, or maybe there isn't as much as I thought) but anyways, I need a bunch of nuts and bolts, do they sell them on LMC or places like that? There really isn't a junkyard that has a k5 just sitting there around here...

    You could just go to a hardware store and pick out the sizes you need? Just make sure to get a grade that is strong enough for the application.

    Yes, LMC will take you for a ride with their prices. I only use their catalogue for the pictures. lol /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I could go to a hardware store, but some of the things are probably special made. I just don't want to mess anything up is what I am saying. I will think about the hardware store. Thanks for the suggestion.

    While you still remember where the bolts go, get freezer bags with the tags on them and write down where they go, before you forget. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif It will make things soooooooooo much easier when you put it back together again.

    the only bolts that i can think of are special are, i can't think of any. you can get just about any bolt you need from the hardware store, just make sure they are the size and grade you need. i use at least grade 5 for everything.

    only speacel ones i can think of are moter mound blots, and caliper bolts. any onter speacal blots are tapered tips (witch dont really mater) and ones with thinks like torque heads.

    hardware stores are fine buddy, just try not to buy stuff made overseas, get northamarica made stuff for sure quality. and i agree use grade 5 stuff, or 8 for heave load bareing stuff, (bumper,winch mounts ect.)

    A bolt that is hard to find at the hardware store are the leaf spring eye bolts. The 9/16" ones. At least they are hard to find around here.

    okay, if I need a bolt I will just look at the hardware store and hope they have it. I have been labeling things lately, but most of the interior I got carried away with and forgot to lable. Right now I can't think of anything else that is going to be really hard to put together without the right bolts.
    I will just pray and hope that I can find them all in the spring. I have some in a bucket, a container, and some bags.

    the 9/16" bolts are quite easy to find hear, good selection also
    the motor mount bolts are a 1/2" x 4.5" nothing special, bought some at the hardware store here.
