    Hey all. I have discovered that my bumper is held on by one, single, lonely nut.
    It looks like its an M8 size nut but when i picked a couple up they didn't want to thread more than a few turns.

    Does anyone know if they are a special thread pitch or anything?
    I picked up M8 x 1.00 nuts i believe.
    Could i possibly need M8 x 1.25?

    Anyone think i could find anything suitable floating around at the store or am i going to need to hit up the junk yard and get the real deal?

    My bumper also slouches a lot. Would this probably fix it? I tried to lift it up and it was better, but it's like it's bowed in the middle. I know the bumper itself is a little rusty last time i peaked in at it (body looks fine tho). Maybe I should pick up a whole new bumper.

    Thanks for any input!

    If you're talking about the four bolts that hold the impact bar to the front of the structure....two on each side....they're 8 x 1.25 on both my EF's.

    Thats exactly what I'm talking about! Thanks : )
    Are they a special shape or anything or might i be able to get a regular nut to work?

    Its really hard to find anything thats X x 1.25 around hear tho.
