x2! it's that slight difference that is pissing me off. I can't do much now since it also started raining ... I'm going to try and find a Napa close to me to see if they can help/have the longer bolt I need.

I haven't gotten the correct bolt yet, not hard at all - just remember that left is to loosen and right is to tighten

go to a Fastenal store or their website. they have everything you could possibly imagine as far as fasteners and hardware. and if they dont they can find it or order it.

also i have a question. do you have dimensions for the spacers themselves? like outside diameter and the the diameter of the hole in the center? i am trying to get a set machined and i was hoping you could help me out since you already have a set. thanks.

going to have to do this, I hate that there's always that "off" threaded bolt from the dealership. But makes sense since dealerships are always doing "off" shit all the damn time.

NICE!!! I am hoping to get the right bolt, had some insight from Yoytoda about how to find the bolt, just need to get some time to hit up the Napa store (hopefully if they don't have it I can at least get an exact size/type of bolt that is being used).

I know that the I.D. of the spacer should be equal to a 5/8" or M16 bolt. The 3/4" I.D. hex nuts that I bought jiggle a little bit on the OE spindle bolt BUT not as much. O.D. ... not sure but the package for the 3/4" hex nut says 3/4" - 16 on them.

Thanks man. I checked the Fastenal website and they have all kinds of stuff, even grade 8 steel round bar stock to machine these spacers out of. Luckily there is a Fastenal store right near my work so when i get time i am gonna take one of my stock spindle bolts in there and see what i can come up with. if i get anything good i will let ya know and see if i can pick some stuff up.

via pm we discussed metric thread pitches.

american/ SAE use a different method to determine the threads. threads on SAE are how many threads per inch of bolt or nut. so 5/8"-16 is a 5/8" nut with 16 threads per inch

the 16 has nothing to do with it being similar size to a 16mm bolt

5/8" = 15.875mm

well today was a bust ... the guy at the Fastenal place wasn't very helpful at all! only got the type of bolt, which he said it was a 5/8" flange bolt (he pretty much did the same thing I did when I went to OSH but I guess he knew what kind of bolt it was). not sure about the rest because just wasn't much of any help PERIOD ... sorry just got back and a little irritated.

not sure if this helps any but looks like this is a good start imo.

http://www.fastenal.com/web/search/p...3Zjuevxs&Nty=0

*Update - good news, so I was sifting through the pages of the link. there's only two types, Fine and Corse. Looks like the bolt is a 5/8" Flange Fine threaded bolt. Now all that maybe left is to get the right length, order, and install!!!! GETTING CLOSE !!!!!!

MORE UPDATES!!!!!! lol yeah I know, so as I am lurking around more and more in the Fastenal site, I find this!!!

http://www.fastenal.com/web/products...1115660&ucst=t
notice it has the same WT 10.9 on it as the bolts in this picture to a spacer kit (keep in mind that the one in the Fastenal link is NOT Fine, it is Corse sadly).
