Coil Over Issue

Morning All,

Iím looking to replace a couple of the coil overs on the project.

I thought it would be straightforward....

I can buy the correct length and diameter but itís the fixing bolt size that is the issue.

I need coil overs to accept 5/8 (16mm) bolts but they all seem to be 12mm now.....

Gaz and Spax are my preferred brands but what other makes are recommended?

Is my only option custom made?

I will keep searching..

Thanks for reading.

Could you not use top hats on the mounts, to sleeve the holes in the mounting brackets down to 12mm?

Or are you building a lorry?
