Howdy,

Do any of you guys know the size of the bolts holding the front struts. There are a pair at the bottom of the strut and need to be replaced if the strut is pulled.

Planning on replacing the bearings at the top of the strut on the weekend and need to pick some replacement bolts up.

Hopefully this stops the squeeling noises.

Cheers,

Phil

Not sure on that one...why not just call up spare parts at your nearest dealer?

You may not even need to remove them to get the top bushes/bearings out and in. There was a tutorial on how to do this on the Australian LS1 and Holden Forums I believe.

Cheers for that, I'll try and do it without removing the lower bolts if it looks easier.
