    Going to do the weld-in and bolt on brace. Anybody know the length of the new bolts needed?

    Never did the bolt on brace in my 86, but with the weld on, I was able to reuse my stock bolts.

    The bolt-in brace comes with new bolts. the were plenty long to account for a weld-in brace in my situation.

    The bolts that come with the bolt on brace are 4" long.

    The bolts that come with the kit should work out fine. The weld in only adds about 1/8" to the overall thickness.
    If you need longer ones, the kit comes with 7/16 x 3 so you'll want to get a 7/16 x 3.25". You probably won't need to.
