Do you have one of the old bolts? You may just need to take an old bolt and have them match it up.

Will the bolts for the 5.0 work? Might just have to buy two sets...

Also, ask Advance if they have it in PDQ or not, if they do it's a next day delivery. If they "dont' know how to check", have them press F6 twice then F8 to check for it lol.

I haven't been on this forum in a while and I'm trying to work my way back into it. I'm going for Mod or bust!
