    I was wondering if anyone knows the size and length of the bolts for a 1967 Barracuda Front Lower Shock bolts. I am putting new front shocks on the wife's car and noticed someone has put what looks to be all-thread in both lower shocks mounts. Thanks!

    Here is one from a 63 Valiant. They are probably all around the same length. Any hardware store should have
    a grade 5 or grade 8 bolt that will work.

          Wrong.
          You are passing along incorrect information.
          They are 7/16 x 14 x 2 1/4 inch length.
          Been rebuilding suspension parts for the past 12 years for resale, and i have a box full of shock absorber bolts to the lower control arm.

          FYI
          If you don't already know this, bolt length is measured from under the head of the bolt.

          Thanks everyone for your reply's! From what I am seeing here then it looks like they are the same bolt that my 72 E-body lower shock bolt is then. Surprising that Mopar actually used the same size bolt on more then one vehicle, that's why I asked for help here. Thanks again!

          Those shock absorber bolts haven't changed on the A, B, E, body line of cars from 1962 to 1976 that i am aware of, when Ma Mopar went to this type of lower control arm front suspension.
