    Im gonna be installing the 3/4 ton axles and 4" springs and am planning to use stainless bolts. Can someone tell me the sizes and lenghts I will need to purchase. I need the sizes of the front and rear spring bolts, and the front and rear shackle bolts. Are the front and rear bolts the same size?(Front and rear bolt of the same spring?) Also, can someone give me the sizes and lenghts of the body bolts for my 86 K10?
    Thanks!

    Don’t use stainless bolts at the chassis. They aren’t strong enough.

    I thought they would be pretty strong, thanks for the heads up!

    Sorry but in Germany it’s not legal to use stainless bolts on the chassis. Only grade 8 with fine threads (p.e. 3/8-24). Stainless steel is very tough, but not hard enough.
