Help Bolt Sizes

Hi All,

Help please I need the size and specification of some bolts so I can buy them prior to doing some work on my 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Orvis.

The last place I want to buy the bolts from is the Steallership.

Can you tell me, are the following Metric or Imperial, their length, diameter and grade.

The bolts holding the Lower Control Arms on at both ends.

The cams at the axle end of the lower controll arm. I think I might need to go to the dealer for these.

The Pan head bolt and nut connecting the Track bar to the bracket at the front right end of the axle housing.

The bolts that hold on the Anti Roll bar clamp

Has anyone get any ideas / tips on removing a stuck Panhead bolt? Mine is sized and will not undo. If I snap it off the problem will be removing whats left of the bolt. Any thoughts?

All help and info gratefully received.

The track bar bolt is M10x1.5. Its about 3" long. Breaking it off will be fine, since the other half will come out in the nut on the backside. The nut is attached to a tab for easy install. You could just use a regular nut when you reinstall and hold it with a pair of needlenose.

That bolt runs $27 at the dealership (around here - probably even more in the UK)... I know the hard way. And it didn't even fit my adjustable track bar.

Not sure about the others.

From the parts film for '98. Sizes are there for some, but not all. I don't see grades.
