    i was in the middle of doing a ord shackel flip and diff swap i took apart my leafs to find that the bolts that hold the leafs togeather were in a wiggle worm torn up pattern. i know that i need some new bolts (grade 8) but should they have tine treads or thick i already found some that thick ones.

    It sounds like he's talking about the spring pin bolts. If so, he can use some grade 8 3/8-16 hex socket cap screws and be just fine.
