    I think the subject is pretty clear. :)

    4 bolts, what length/size do you need? I suspect 3/8", but it's been awhile since I looked at it. I've got a decent bolt bucket, but if they are larger than 3/8" I'm going to have to buy some.

    Thanks!

    7/16 X 1-1/2 If I remember right.

    Well, there's one vote for 7/16", anyone else? :)

    I think they are 7/16 x 1", 1 1/2" is a bit too long.

    But we are sure they are 7/16"? I vaguely recall thinking they looked a little oversized when I took the thing apart, but that was over 2 years ago. :)

    I just need to have a couple bolts on hand to hold the shaft in place while I manually articulate the suspension.

    I just swapped a 205 into my truck so I can guarantee they are 7/16 (at least on my truck).

    If my memory serves me right, back in my Vo-Tech days in '90, I replaced all the bolts on my Fords 203 for some allen head bolts and everyone of them was 3/8" but different lengths.
    I know the 203 and 205 share the same bolt sizes but one uses more bolts than the other.

    I'm sticking by 3/8" bolts but can't tell you how long since I can't remember and I don't have a spare 205 laying around at the moment.

    Wes, the front driveshaft bolts to the flange with (4) 7/16 x 1" bolts; I verified this by double checking against your 205, which by the way, I need to find a ride to KS for. I can't get away from here now due to employee problems. Want to live the old west cowboy way? The "help wanted" sign is back up.
