I just realized that I'm going to be spending over $100 on suspension bolts alone.
What kind of material? SS? Galvanized? Grade 8?
Ok, not to disagree with you, but what does metric have to do with how much you have to spend on suspension hardware?
What truck is this on? Maybe this will explain why you're using metric...
X2 Love my German metal!
asstastic hat... sry..
yeah what kind of truck are you workin on?
I wanna say a Toyota?
a yoder? blah yank all that jap crap out and go one ton
sorry for the stock response to axle/suspension issues...
I was brought up on Whitworth and BSF, followed by UN and metric. No wonder I've spent thousands of pounds on tools!!
Metric fasteners are the cheapest over here until you need oddball metric threads, then they really know how to charge!
From where? Most fastener companies give "cash" discounts if you can find the right sales/counter person.
It is a Toyota. I am "yanking all that jap crap and going one ton".
But, Toyota springs have a 20.5" short side, which, in combination with a zero rate and 40" tires will give me a 90 degree approach angle.
Nobody makes/sells M18 bolts. I can find M16 and M20 by the chitload, but M18 with an actual hex head on it apparently doesn't exist except from specialty vendors.
