    They're a 1/2" bolt. Grade 5, IIRC they are anywhere from 6 1/2" to 10" ( I think it was either 8" or 10" ) Had to got to the hardware store to buy 4 longer ones,the ones that came in the kit were'nt long enough to reach through the rear cargo area...

    Call Performance Products and tell them you bought one of their bodylift kits, but it was missing half of the bolts. Ask them to give you a list of the bolts that should be included in the kit. Or, ask them to send you the installation instructions on their kit. It will probably list the specifics on the bolts.

    However, like Walla2K5 said, the rear cargo bolts need to be about 8-10" long. I think I ended up getting the 10" long ones after finding out the 8" long ones I bought were too short.

    lengths from my 87 K5

    I wrote these lengths down when I added a 3" body lift last year and now I don't remember for sure if this is the length bolts I took out or the length I put in. I'm about 90% sure this is the length that came out of the Blazer. Any way, here they are:

    (2) 1/2-13 x 5.5" carraige bolt
    (2) 1/2-13 x 7.5" carraige bolt
    (2) 1/2-13 x 7.5" hex head bolt
    (4) 1/2-13 x 6" hex head bolt

    Hope this helps. Remember to add your body lift to these lengths.

    Since we are on the body lift topic. What is the proper torque requirements for the bolts?
