GM #10262655 Frame Bolt
In a previous thread I mentioned I am about to upgrade my 20 year old front suspension. I believe I am going with all new upper/lower tubular control arms from Street Trends. Beyond that I am replacing ball joints, tire rods, center lings and idler arm.
Now for the "PROBLEM". Obtaining all the above parts is quite easy, as long as your wallet is full. The major set back is the FOUR bolts that go through the frame for the upper control arms, GM part number 10262655. These bolts are knurled just below the head and are a bear to remove. After twenty years they no longer resemble their younger days!
Without question these four bolts need changing, every where I look I am told "Discontinued".
Has anyone fabricated a replacement?
I wish I had four of them?
