    ok.. i'm going to be replacing my factory lcas for some PIC lcas.. now is it advisable to replace the bolt that holds the lca in place or can i reuse the ones on there again... and is it recommended to use the bolts from Honda or can i hit up any bolt shop??

    they should be arriving tomorrow and i just want to be ready and not have to find a ride to the store..

    Bolts are cheap, what is it like 4 bolts total?
    Go to the hardware store and get some high grade stainless, mark the bag that you only got low grade steel :ph34r:

    thats where i looked.. but i can drive to Honda 5 minutes away and not have to worry about shipping..

    i'll probably go to Budget Bolt (local place) in the morning.. they have absolutely any bolt you would ever need.. , just about

    Take one out, measure the pitch, put it back in, and go get the right size.

    Personally, I'd reuse them unless they are rusty / showing signs of wear. I've never had a LCA bolt break on me, ever.

    Now, I did have two in the integra that had rusted themselves into place. I did replace those when I replaced the LCA's..

    i'm thinking they'll be fine.. remember i live in CA and we dont know what rust is.. it may just take some effort to break the thing loose.. time to go buy a piece of pipe
