The shouldered ones are tighter and the thinking is that there won't be any place with them.

Here's a good read: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/the...128154-25.html

I upgraded to the poly bolts, but they dont fit the RK control arms and track bars. You want to get the stock size bolt, but shouldered.

7mm? someone correct me? the polys are 9/16

14mm for stock track bar bolts. 14mm is extremely close to 9/16, just lightly run a drill bit through the arms and they'll be good to go. That's what I'd do over just putting another 14mm bolt in a 9/16" factory hole.

I have the rk 3.5" max travel and love it. My friend has the fab tech on his fj and it sucks it doesn't come with as much stuff as my rk came with and paid the same. Also his is a 6" and mines still bigger
