    #5 is an M12 and 92.5mm in length. It would be best if the shank was smooth where it goes through bushing sleeve. Make sure to get a lock washer as well.

    #7 is M12 and 135mm in length. Thread pitch is most likely 1.25 (in case the nut is welded). You probably won't find this length in Metric at you average hardware store though. And again, smooth shank and lock washer are a good idea.

    That's exactly what I needed. I'm heading to Fastenal this weekend to tidy everything up.

    Thanks!

    If you can't find them at fastenal... boltdepot.com has a very good selection but then you have to pay shipping too so I usually order extras of other sizes just to have. Nothing worse than down time due to a silly bolt.

    Save yourself a TON of time and just get them from the dealership. I tried ordering these and others from Fastenal a couple of years ago and it was a complete nightmare-and expensive. This is one area where you are not going to pay too much more with the dealer than with Fastenal...plus it will be correct hardware for a very critical part

    JNZ it is! I'd much rather have the Oem bolts.

    Thanks everyone
