    dont worry i searched first!! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif anyway i am making a new cross member for the rear to relocate the shocks. i am making one similar to this [​IMG] is there a certain bolt/sleved bolt i need (where do i buy them), or could i use a regular bolt, of would i be better off using a smaller bolt with a piece of tube as a sleeve? thanks for the info in advance. Chris

    what size hole??? the p-19 rancho bolt uses a 5/8" hole. the #146029 ( or is it 140629???) uses a 1/2" hole and is made by gabriel.

    Either way is OK as long as you don't squeeze the grommet too much. If you use a bolt without a sleeve use a lock nut.
