Well I just put two coil spacers 1 1/4 in on my rear 2003 jeep tj today and went to put the bolts back and they were not long enough to put the isolator back on just the spacer. Here is the problem the bolts never seemed to tight in down the one is lose and other is just barley tight so I guess its time for new ones what size do I ask for at the store I know its a 15mm socket but what thread size and length and both cups look like they need to be replaced too so any input would be great just want to do bolts for now till it gets warm enough to replace cups so a link to a good replacement would be nice and what bolts to get for now to hold me over I'm afraid the cup and bumpstop will come out thanks Ed. PS I put 2in spacers up front no problem

Also if the cups and bumpstop com off will the spring pop off or will the veh weight hold it in place? Im thinking of just replace the bolts while the spring is on just jacking up the the jeep to drop the axle to get my hand between the spring enough for a rachet. Thanks

M10x1.5 IIRC length depends on what you need

I stacked washers to make up the difference in height between the cup and perch when I put 1.75" spacers on

I had my bolts for the bump stop cups snap on me front and rear. It was a major pain. I had to wind up drilling them out and then replaced it with longer grade 8 hardware. The fronts were the hardest..luckily those came out easy for you. The rears were pretty easy to get too since inside the mount isn't as deep. Hopefully the nuts inside yours aren't getting stripped, otherwise that might be the route you have to take too.
