Can anyone tell me what the size of the 3 studs in the top of the front

struts are?

Thanks.



Is there anywhere to get some? There is nobody local that has them.

McMaster-Carr wants $12.37 plus shipping for 100. I really don't need 100.

RockAuto, Summit, etc. sell studs if they're really just a standard stud.

RockAuto has M8 studs for less than a $1.  NAPA usually has a good

selection in stock, too.

Allen,



Tacoma Screw in Ballard or Kirkland will have them in small quantities.

This studs are part of the top mount.  Are you looking for the nuts or are you

trying to replace a stud that snapped?

Tacoma screw does not have any. They are basically carriage bolts but in

metric.

I assume these are a flat headed stud.B  If you wind up with 100 and they

are a tad longer than stock I will buy a few from you. Would like to

reinforce the strut tower & use camber plates.

Allen,







I am with Bill on this.  I've been planning on building a strut brace. Selling as few lots of the books could recoup a significant portion of your investment.







I've been looking at building a high hat not to drop in through the cancer plate, but the stud is far cleaner.
