View Full Version : Question about suspension

Im going to be replacing the struts/shocks on the front and rear.

Im reading over the installition and it says to discard the spindle to uppercontrol arm bolt and nut... alright but where do I find a new bolt and nut?

I replaced the balljoint/control arms about a year ago and they are fine so do I reuse the bolts/nuts or what?

the nut shouldve come with your upper control arm kit.. you should be able to reuse it.

yea I got the bolt/nut when I replaced the control arm Last year... but to remove the struts , the instructions say to discard that bolt/nut and replace it.

Im just curious to see if I have to discard it and if so where would I get a new one

shouldnt have to. i actually just reused the one that was on there before when i did my UCA's... you only torque them to like 70-75.. its not like head bolts.

Minor point but MN12's do not have struts...coil over shocks on the front. Shocks in the rear. The front suspension is a SLA (Short ,Long Arm) system.
