front shock nut


I installed the icon 2.5. The directions said to double nut the front shock. I need to know the size of nut I need. I tried a bunch that I have but I don't have many metric nuts/bolts laying around. I don't feel like taking them off or buying a bunch of nuts. thanks.

Off the top of my head I want to think it's either a 19mm or 21mm. I don't remember for sure. Not sure why they want you to double nut a shock bolt either? Never heard of that one before. If your worried about it and have some blue loctite handy you might put that on before you torque the nut down. It shouldnt go anywhere.
