Seemed to have misplaced my front spring bolts... Anyone know what size to use for my 68? Also, washers needed? I've seen them for sale on the sites, but wondered if I can purchase locally (Lowes?) Pics?

Thanks

true..true... BUT, that says 4 3/4 long and 1/2 diameter.... westcoastcougar says 5 inches and ??? diameter..

Don't want to be caught 1/4 inch short :) Anyone confirmed the MU ones are long enough? I'm at work and wanted to pick them up on the way home... can measure from my desk :)

Those bolts will also be Grade 8, not grade 2 or 5 like most bolts at big box stores...

I do seem to recall using an old cylinder head or maincap bolt from something or other for this purpose once... Can't remember what car that was in - probably my old Camaro... 30+ years ago!
