That bolt doesnt appear to be a standard "hardware" type of bolt. looks to be tapered and shouldered and would prob. be a grade 5 or grade 8 .temp fix you could use a reg. bolt but long term i try to find proper replacement

Those don't look like the free disco's I gave you awhile back.
have you ever tried to disco them and then reconnect them?
these disconnect and reconnect like the JKS ones. very easy...
btw, Jeeperx, you were right. it is a "shoulder" style bolt. ace hardware had that style bolt but they didn't have the size i needed. guess i'll look somewhere else or just take the other one out so i can compare inside the store. i honestly haven't noticed a handling difference...except for last night i took a turn in 2nd gear and was just goin a tad fast and the tire started spinning. didn't used to do it that easily.
you could try your local hardware store. they should have something that will work. as far as those discos from RE. they are bad ass, ive wheeled with mine many times and when its time to disconnect it takes me under a minute. they also came with fender mounts for when im not connected
A friend of mine had the same problem with his RE gen II disconects shortly after he installed them. He called RE and they promptly sent him new bolts. We were in Moab Ut. at the time and he got them the next day. Excellent service!
