Just thought I would pass along that I have been having a heck of a time finding metric Hardware for my car. Especially the extra fine thread ( pitch of 1 mm ) and the nylocks.
I have done a fair bit of suspension work and there are many locknuts that are one time use only.
Anyway for the local guys (Ontario Canada ) I found everything I need at "spaenaur" in Kitchener , they have all the metric sizes in lock nuts and different materials in nay quantity.
I bought the nuts for the top of my tie rods and the top of my rear shocks
M10 pitch of 1mm 17mm across the flats ( 178-305 )
I also bought the nuts to hold the shocks on at the hub for the rear
M16 pitch of 1.5mm 24mm across the flats. ( 178-587)
Can you believe the dealer did not have any of these in stock even though they are suppose to be a "once only nut" ???
isn't the dealer suppose to do things right !!!!!! ???
Anyway my "new Bilstein shocks" that I hope fit are on the way ..as my Boges did not !!!
PS anyone know if the Bilsteins come with a new strut cap ?
