Rag joint bolts

Does anyone know what size the bolts that hold the rag joint to the steering box are?

Re: Rag joint bolts

Buy it from lmc because their is only one bolt out of the 3 if i remember and be prepared to drill out the ones that aren't bolts unless you're taking out your steering column

Re: Rag joint bolts

The steering column is out and I just need the bolts. LMC doesn't have them separately. I thought if I could get the size I could buy them locally.

Re: Rag joint bolts

Just to clarify, I am looking for the bolts that hold the rag joint to the steering column shaft.

Re: Rag joint bolts

Can you go to a parts store and check the Dorman (help) Section for the correct ones? I thought mine had splines in the shoulders,for a special fastener
if i remember right???
but do not quote me on that .....

Re: Rag joint bolts

If you are talking the pinch bolt.....Factory uses a 12 point headed bolt. You can use an allen head style. 3/8'' fine thread, 1-1/4'' long , should be grade 8
