Post Front Wishbone Bolts
Can anyone tell me what size the bolts are that go through the bushes on the front wishbones (see pic).
Also, are they fully or partially threaded?
I'd like to get a replacement before I cut off the head of the 'trapped' one.
Thanks.

The bolts supplied in the kit were fully threaded,10mm OD I assume as the tubes are 10mm ID, which I built the car with. But later to try and improve the suspension I purchased longer bolts and cut them down to have the longer shank.

As Bob says, M10 bolts. I replaced mine soon after I got my Spyder and similarly, I bought much longer bolts so the whole of the bit through the crush tube and the clevises is unthreaded and then cut down the threaded ends to just two turns of thread beyond the nut. There is a guide somewhere online to what lengths of bolts are threaded/plain.
