Suspension bolt kit group buy
I will soon be ready to bolt all of my suspension back on, for the last time :cool:
Although I have plenty of bolts, unfortunately, they are set bolts & I personaly, don't think it too wise to use them !!
Most of you will be aware, if fixings are bought in larger quantitys, it tends to work out a lot cheaper ;)
Have gauged some prices & here's what I have come up with.
Full suspension & diff mounting Kit
2, M12 X 260mm bolts ( Rear uprights )
2, M12 X 200mm bolts ( Diff mounts )
20, M12 X 75mm bolts ( Wishbones, rear camber adjusters & Lower rear shock mounts )
6, M12 X 60mm bolts ( Front shocks & rear upper shocks )
30 M12 Nyloc nuts, Type p, 14mm thick
60 M12 Flat washers ( One for each side of the bolt ) Form A 24mm od, 2.5mm thick
60 M12 Black plastic nut covers
I have costed each kit at about £22.50 - £25 Max, dependent on postage cost.
To make full use of buying full boxes of the longer bolts ( This is where the bulk of the cost is ), I will need to find enough interest to shift 10 sets .
I am quite happy to organise a group buy as it may help others avoid the headache of finding the long bolts & paying through the nose by buying small quantitys :)
Any thoughts welcome.
Just to add, the bolts will be High Tensile 8.8 grade & all bolts, nuts & washers will be Bright Zinc Plated
Here's the list so far
1: Bonzo + nut covers
2: Tatey + nut covers + Plain nut set
3: Greasemonkey + nut covers
4: KenK + nut covers + Plain nut set
5: les g + nut covers
6: HandyAndy + nut covers
7: CarlKnight1982 + nut covers
8: David 17
9: Luke2482 + nut covers
10: Ginger Nutter + nut covers
11: Geeman + nut covers
12: Tkpm + nut covers + Plain nut set
13: onedayTM + nut covers + Plain nut set
If any of you are confused about the nut covers, please read further down the thread.
I have found a cheaper source for most of the fixings in addition to a low cost source of M12 plastic nut covers .... Looks as if I can include nut covers without increasing the kit price :)
Count me in Bonzo!
I think the best thing to do is start a list of folk that are interested :)
If anyone thinks the quantity or any of the sizes are wrong let me know .... It can be ammended accordingly & should not affect the price.
If you want in, just add your name to the list :)
me to please:)
Prices are based on the lowest price that I can find at the moment
Rest assured, i'll continue hunting & will get to my local wholesaler to see if I can get a better price break. ;)
Determined to get the cost down, as low as possible :)
Me too please, thanks
Nice one KenK
I think One more & I will go ahead & order up .... I can then leave this offer open untill all 10 sets are gone :)
Now the good news
I have found a cheaper source for all of the fastenings except the longest bolts.
This stockist also has the Plastic nut covers at a very good price ( Some required fro IVA puposes )
Would folk like the appropiate nut covers included or would you prefer a lower, kit price ?
It would also be great if someone has an idea of exactly what nuts need to be covered .... It would be a real pitty not to order enogh if that's what folk want ;)
Id prefer for the nut covers to be included please Bonzo. I'll need them eventually and I can't see it costing much extra.
I know for certain that the roll bar bolts need to be covered (however i wont be needing these as my roll cage will be fully welded in).
Me too please, thanks
5: les g & the nut covers please
You are dead right there Tatey, some nut covers will be needed for IVA
Being as I have managed to find a lower cost source for most of the fixings, i'll be able to include nut covers without increasing the original estimated cost of the bolt kit ( If that's what folk prefer ) :cool:
I'll have a study of some post IVA buid pics & see if I can work out what nuts need to be covered ;)
