Well the Commander is gone and I have parts never installed.

JBA parts are for sale for less than list price, and I will cover the shipping. My loss, your gain.

Al's A-Arms - $425
Al's Sway Bar Disconnects 2" - $175
Strut Spacer plates - $30
Coil Spring Isolators - Free if you buy any/all of the above.

I have these listed on ebay. Would like to use paypal.

Thanks

Purchased them Feb. 2nd. Commander transmission was failing so I traded it in. I opened the box, inspected parts, and placed them all back in the box. Never Installed.

I am in Texas.

Do the strut spacer plates require longer bolts? How do they fit?

Strut plates fit on top of the strut mount. They do not require longer bolts because we'll you can't replace the bolts on a strut mount.

And the strut plates and control arms are sold fyi

They can be removed. Omelet (WK) ran 2 of them stacked with longer bolts.

Now for the front.

I was already using one set of Rusty's strut spacers. With one set on I could see that the bolts were not long enough for another set. So I had to get longer bolts. Instead of tracking down just the right size stud that would be a proper replacement only longer, I bought grade 8 bolts to use. The problem with using bolts and not studs is now the bolts could freely spin, where as the studs were pressed in place.

The new hardware:



Compared to the old:




To remove the stock studs from the strut plate, I used a 7/8 socket. After letting them soak for a few minutes in PB blaster I placed the socket under the stud, and after a couple good whacks they popped out.




Now I placed the new bolts in and welded the heads to the plate. After hitting them up with a wire brush, primer, and paint they your good to go.



I reassembled the strut assembly and they were ready to go back in!
