What a Cluster F@#% !
I was frustrated over the weekend I didn't post anything else.

Only bolts I could find meeting those specs were galvanized... I bought them and didn't realize they had a notch on them to fit into something(or maybe hold a washer?)
Anyhow they would not go all the way down through the holes of a-arm spacer. *I Should have just bought a new one they are so cheap, or better yet an adj a-arm.
-Dropped axle completely to see if I could get new control arms and coils and shocks on and ride it for a week until right bolts come In.
I quickly realized this wouldn't work even if the upper a-arm ball joint was completely bound up I couldn't get the axle back up to it.
-Also theres a hose that works as some sort of vent for the axle housing that was to short. This should also be an easy cheap fix.

Long story short since its my DD for now, I had to put axle and control arms and old bb(cause I can't clear the tires without) back on. Until the bolts come and I grab that hose. (Nappa or advanced should have the hose).
They should be here this week if so I'll take off Fri or Mon and try this again over the weekend.

Lol, thanks. Wouldn't be as bad if I didn't already have the axle off, or waste most of the weekend.
I found out that hose on the axle is nothing more than a breather so, I should be able to get it done this weekend.... hopefully lol.
