I'm pulling apart my suspension getting ready for the Nitrons, and I found that the spindle bolts up front are 40 mm and 50 mm. Shouldn't the longer ones be 60 mm?

Just wondering if the V2 arms require a shorter rear bolt, or if the 50 mm was put there in error.

Thanks!

You are welcome! I like to use 10.9 bolts. MWR sell them one by one ;)

Suspension is back together. Got the suspension hardware pack from InoKinetic, which has 10.9-grade spindle bolts, so I replaced them on all four corners, blue Loctite, 50 ft-lb torque, etc.

I'm whooped from setting the ride height...if I feel the need to self-quarantine, it might as well be in the garage! Camber definitely needed some attention, as original settings had about -1.0 degrees on three of the wheels and -1.8 on the right rear!
