What size bolt do i need to the rear lower arm that holds the spring? i just ordered a new one and im 100% sure the bolts will break once i take it off,so if some can please give me a part number for the bolt or the size i will need for it that would be awesome

Is it the inner bolt that connects to the subframe? Or is it the outer one by the wheel? If it is the same as the regular focus the inner one I got was from Ford, part 6s4z-5k978-aa. It has a lopsided head and a cam so you can adjust the alignment. Here is a picture: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-H...130_084121.jpg

nice pic, but fyi - that's not the Ford nut (which is ok, just make sure it's hardened grade)

I know, it's a random grade 8 nut that is the right thread. I'm won't pay $10 for a nut when I can just put locktight on a hardware store nut of appropriate strength.
