    I have a 2003 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner Xtracab 2WD, I need help finding this part for the Rear Shock Absorber, it’s the bolt that holds it onto the leaf spring seat, The guy told me the bolt broke off in the leaf spring seat but I stuck a screwdriver and it doesn’t feel like it. I think I just need the bolt. If anyone has any ideas lmk.

    They are m12x1.5x30. They have a big fender washer too. The bushings are the harder thing to find.

    Would I need the bushings if I was to put on new shocks? I have some Bilsteins I want to put in and they have the bushings, I would still need the washer tho huh

    A lift, some wheels, some tires, some performance, some cosmetic and then audio.
    My 5125's rear shocks came with 2 washers (one for the top and one for the bottom bolt).

    If the op orders them from Toyota by the part number they should get the correct ones

    OP could've gone to the store, remove other bolt to bring inside said store, and bought a pair of new ones after finding the correct length and size.

    Over the years I've had a few of my rear shock bolts come completely out. I finally used some blue locktite on them and torqued them to spec. This has happened on both left and right sides, and on both the top and the bottom bolts. YMMV.
