Bolt sizes? front suspension

I'm going to be starting the process of replacing my front suspension. I know some of these bolts are going to be a PI TA to get off. I would rather just put new bolts in with the new ucas and lcas. What are the bolt sizes I would need to replace the shock mount bolt. UCA bolts exct..I'm having a hard time finding any part numbers or size information on this. Thanks for your help.

Ryan

They are specialty bolts, you won’t be able to buy new ones. The only bolt that is ever a problem is the lower shock bolt, so try to get that out first. If that comes out, then the rest will be fine to remove and reuse. If the lower shock bolt needs to be cut out, then you will have to get a used set from someone on here.

-91 Cougar LS, coming soon, complete overhaul with a 427" Windsor.
-90 XR7 5-speed black on black w/sunroof, MP2, coated rotors, double intercooler, 15%OD, ported heads, comp stage 1 cam, 85mm TB, 90MM LMAF, 80# injectors, and ported big valve heads
-98 Mark VIII LSC, Procharger P600b, TR3650 swap and 3.73s.
-90 SC Automatic rustbucket winter beater
-97 Tbird Sport 4.6 Nice weather daily driver

i agree with mad mikey probably best to just reuse them. If you need to get a new one I think that if you take a ruler and count the threads for every inch it will give you some info on the bolt specs. not sure if that's correct check with a hardware store maybe

97 lx (sport??) 'burd
sn95 hub swap (in progress)
cobra rear brake (parts needed)

They are metric, specialty grade / with tangs on them, etc .. probably not going to find anything close to this at a hardware store.

If you need any bolts, let me know.

You won't find anything like these at Lowe's.
