    I am putting tein HA's on my sol and using integra type R rear lower control arms. I have heard tons of horror storys about bolt being seized plus my car has almost 150k on it, I decided to just go ahead and replace as many bolts as possible or just have a stock pile so incase I strip one when taking everything apart, I dont have to spend 3 days with no car searching for bolts. What bolts do I need to get and how many for the back. How many and what kind (model design) do I need for the front. Are there any interchangable bolts that I could use?

    the ones that usually break are the LCA bolts
    theres 4 per side (2 slightly shorter than the other 2)
    i broke one of them
    use some penetrating oil and you should be able to get most of them out ok
    pick up 2-4 of them if you want to be extra prepared (the long ones will work for the shorter ones)

    brian, is that just the rear that you have to do that to or do you have to do that all around. Also, just the outside?
