Hey guys!

A while back, my driver side axle shifted and jacked back into my fender. Apparently I somehow lost a bolt that keeps the CV axle stationary. I'm not sure what it called, maybe A-Frame bolts, the ones in the front, so hopefully someone knows. The other bolt that in there is all gnarled up so I need 2 of these bolts. I tried to find something that would work, at Home Depot, Loews and Advanced Auto, but they had nothing. I did try a M12x1.25, but that was too small.

Does anyone have 2 of these bolts that I can buy? I am starting to have issues with the motor in my truck so I really need to get my GEO fixed ASAP, because I got a new job and school will be starting soon.

You can read all about the carnage here, to get a "better" understanding of what happened ;)

I really need your guy's help! I am starting a new job soon and I also need the car to get back and forth to classes!

Thanks guys!

Do you mean the suspension arm front bush mount (that looks like the bolt)?

If so they are a Metric fine thread, a right pita to get, I drilled out the captive nut oversize then tapped it to take a M12x1.25 bolt, I used coated zinc bolts and lots of copperslip to prevent the nasty tin worm rusty stuff corroding it again.

Hope that helps.


Drive with commitment or bloody go home!
