Help with Rubicon Express Lift

Help. I have a 2001 TJ with a Rubicon express 3.5 suspension lift. I've just discovered it is missing a 5/16" bolt that holds the rear track bar adapter tight (the one where you drill the whole yourself). I also noticed that the 1/2" bolt that goes where where the stock bolt position was doesn't have a nut. It seems pretty tight, but shouldn't it have a nut? I looked up the instructions on line and it doesn't really say anything about a nut. I didn't put the kit in, I bought it this way. Rubicon express is closed for re-org. Anyone have experience installing this?

Thanks,

Its not uncommon for bolts to work loose and fall out. Replace the bolt and nut and yes the trac bar bolt needs a nut. Use a grade 8 bolt and some Loc-tite to keep it from coming loose.

Yep, I suspected as much. Once I got the tire off I discovered it was also missing the top bolt as well. I'm lucky this thing was on there at all. After a trip to the hardware store this morning we'll see how it drives.
