Nut Size For Anti Roll Bar Drop Link On Is200

Recommended Posts

Im having one last bash at fitting my TRD antiroll bars, I couldnt get the nut off the drop link so I got a nut splitter, but I will need another nut, anyone have the part number for them or know what size and type nut I should buy to replace the one thats on there?

Many thanks

bretster, have you tried getting some small mole grips on the thread behind the nut. put em on really tight and then tighten them up even more with a larger set of mole grips. this is how mine eventually had to be taken off

I did try that but my moles were to big and were nipping the rubber, so i gave up. hmmm

so annoying that they use a 5mm allenkey its not strong enough to withstand the force needed to get an old rusty nut off :(

I might get some smaller moles and give that ago

thanks for the tip :)

have you not got an allen key bit that fits into a 3/8 rachet set with longer handle more torque
