    Anybody know the bolt size for the top and bottom shock bolts? I'm putting on used Icon 2.5s and want new hardware.

    Would this be the bolt size or the wrench used on the bolt head? Makes a difference if he orders a bolt.

    They are 9mm x 25mm and 14mm x 80mm.

    At least that's what mine are.

    The bottom OEM ones have about 1/2" of a chamfer (not really sure what the technical term is) so you could probably get away with a 70mm

    So would you follow this same procedure if you were removing the coilovers on an already lifted truck? For example a Toytec Boss or King coilover? Thanks!
