          We all need one of those!

          Today, I had some time in the shop and was able to get a couple coilovers on. Had to stop because I need to find some of these step washers, or whatever they're called. They supplied 8 and need another 8. Used for the 12mm B3 knuckle/upright bolts.

                • I wouldn't get tooooo hung up on this. Get some large od 12mm heavy washers and you'll be fine.

                  • When we do stuff like this on the tractor linkage we use a steel bush. It just needs to fit snug in the hole with the correct internal diameter and be the right length so it's flush with flats on the strut.

                      Yes, 4 per coilover that have 12mm bolts. BC told me S2's don't need them. So, I would infer that the rear knuckles all have 14mm bolts. US spec CQ's have 12mm bolts on both the front and the rear.

                      Yeah, I agree. I was just trying to get them to send me some. I have an Amazon delivery waiting for me when I get home from a work trip. I ordered a 12mm ID / 1mm thickness rod that I plan to cut to length.

                          Nice. I did get an email from them saying they are sending me some of those. I wonder if they added them to their catalogue...because I had to exchange several emails explaining the issue and that they were for a NA CQ.
