    Threads should be the same as stock.

    Many places will carry a replacement nut. Make sure it fits (as they will/should let you test it), and make sure its a Nylock nut.

    Well shit dude....How many top nuts have you seen "Fall" off? Either you forgot to put it on, or one of those hippies up there took the dam thing.

    You should be able to put 1 nut on a shock properly when drunk.
