    just measure the hole for the bolts. the depth that is. then see how far your origonal olts go in. then go buy some bolts that are a bit longer if needed.
    the studs are not needed. and the superlifts are for thier springs and most likely will need washers stached to work right.

    I have some somewhere, wanted to run them, but they weren't threaded far enough down, superlift pieces.

    I got the studs from the superlift kit. Work great with my zero rates. Would be to long otherwise

    I got some B7 (B6? Whichever, it was rated stronger than G8) studs from the local bolt store (copper state).

    I have two grade 8 5/8" bolts 4" long in mine. There is all kinds of thread engagement so I'm not worried about it.

    I've got the Superlift studs and with Skyjacker springs and zero-rates, they are just right. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
