maybe sancion arm bolt?
either way, I lost mine today.
anyone know the bolt-size down there?

I need the lowest, rear-most bolt, that goes through the bushing, up into the floor.

It is late here for me now; I'm sure I have some subframe bolts lying about, so if you can wait for UK's mid morning I can supply an accurate answer.

EPC is vague, indicating it could be SCREW/HEX - (Superseded from 4685996) - 11100011 - $4.05 or SCREW - 4345674 - $7.90. In any event, EPC does not supply dimensions/size and thread pitch.

It is a metric bolt, but, not standard pitch!

M12 x 1.5 is the description [standard M12 has a pitch of 1.75mm]

So what you'll need, if you don't buy genuine, is a 12mm bolt with a thread pitch of 1.5mm, a thread length of 85mm and a high tensile rating of 10.9 or better.

Thanks, guys,
I think I'm buying the "upgrade kit" from thesaabsite.com
(looks like it's a recall-kit, or TSB kit, jusding by it's contents and price)
I've had clunking around under there for some time now, and this made me realize it's time to pay some special attention to the car's front-end.

I'll see if I can't grab the bolt tonight/tomorrow.
In the meantme, I'm putting a trans back in the Eclipse tonight!

thanks again!!

US guys, Enjoy your labor-day weekend..
the rest of you... enjoy what's left of yours!

okay... so.. this kit doesn't exist anymore.....I tried.

the good news?
I have a friend @ autoparts International.
I just got the passenger control arm and stanchion arm for $220 total.

For anyone up in the area that might need these parts, let me know.
He said he could do pretty close to that price for anyone I send his way.
He's from a NH API, too.. which means no sales tax!

Let me know, guys!
