    MEGA approved bolt kit

    I know nothing about this other than just seeing it on RDC.

    Such a great idea to package everything together. It is a must do if you wan to keep your car for years and have the correct size bolts in it.

    Didn’t I see an earlier post with a picture of your X3 in a 1000 pieces? Sounds like a Perfect opportunity unlike you some of us always end up with extra hardware left over after putting it back together.... definitely not mega approved!

    Great find. Doesn't mention what grade the hardware is, you'd "assume" quality since the guy increased to the proper shoulder length (another BRP [lack of] quality engineering).
    I'll shoot the guy an email tomorrow to inquire. $200 seems reasonable.

    Nice find Mega!

    When I was building sand cars I would use aircraft bolts from Aircraft Spruce. https://www.aircraftspruce.com/menus/ha/bolts.html

    I always made sure the suspension and steering assembly bolts were shouldered all the way across the bushing they were going through.

    Really not a bad price considering the time it takes to put a kit like that together....there are a lot of nuts and bolts!

    my car was back together for 30 minutes last weekend just to turn it around in the garage and start on the front end rebuild. lol. Bad thing is all my bolts are custom due to the Lonestar Racing weld on gusset kit. I have already made new correct bolts for my car, plus some extras. As stated it takes a lot of time to find the correct length bolts, cut them down and package them up. This kit is a great idea in MEGA opinion.

    Agreed, you have a fine tuned ability to go through a vehicle both identifying potential points of failure and innovative solutions to them simultaneously and your attention to detail, fabrication skills & automotive ability put most to shame and are only equaled by your lack of tolerance for dumb questions The vast majority of others wouldn’t notice that the shoulders on the bolts are incorrect. Seriously, Thank you for continuing to set the bar and helping the rest of us!
