    ordering the stuff for my rear lift tonight and ran into a question i couldn't seem to find the answer to. i know it's highlyrecomended to replace the ubolts when doing an AAL. but what grade bolt is used from the factory. toytec has grade 8s which i would would love to use becasue of the strength, but my autoparts store has grade 5 for $10 a set. if the factory uses grade 5, i'd be ok going with the autoparts stor ones, but will still contemplate the grade 8s. if toyota uses grade 8s stock i'll deffinately get the toytec grade 8s

    if you have a less expensive source for grade 8s, a link is of course welcome.:D

    thanks everyone,
    Colin

    if they are long enough, do you think it would be a good idea to get another set from the dealership? that is if they aren't going to charge me out the ass for them.

    The U bolts used for the TSB springs should be long enough.

    The OEM U bolts from the TSB springs fit my AAL just fine.
