Bronco front coil spring tree

Asked by Mar 09, 2013 at 10:44 AM about the 1996 Ford Bronco

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Thanks, Bob N. Is there a grade to stainless bolts and if so what grade should be used to remount the spring tree?

1 Answer

if you can't get to the otherside, 'nutserts' but any grade of stainless should do after all you're replacing rivets...so although weaker than cold rolled (CRS) grade 303 non magnetic or 304 magnetic will do...anything that won't rust will be okay, still concerned with your access to the far side, that's why 'nutserts'...if they can be had in a screw size that is appropriate. Also may need some clearance, as rivets are lo-profile and am unaware of clearances needed....okay like it's an anchor for the spring shackle...right, Should never interfere with a bolt head...ya think?
