Default Track Bar Bolt

So, not knowing my own strength, I overtightened my track bar bolt after installing my BB and snapped it. I have a temporary replacement, but I keep getting that awful clunking noise. Does anybody know how I can fix this or where I can buy the correct bolt?

The axle side bolt is a M10 fine threaded grade 10.2 in a 75 mm length. IIRC

Thanks for the reply. Do you know where I can get the fancy nut that was on it or will anything work?

I used a metric bolt grade 10.2 and a nylock nut in the same grade from my local bolt store.

I lost the nut-on-a-stick for my tj a couple years back. I didn't want to search for another one so i just cut a square hole under the trackbar bracket (enlarging the existing hole) so i could fit a wrench in there. I used a grade-8 bolt and tightened that **** down good. I prefer to use metric bolts with locking nut with a lock washer as well. It never comes loose.

And if all else fails, order one from your nearby Jeep dealer!

There going to charge you way too much for that. I would suggest going with the JY or a hardware store for the bolt.
