Original hardware from leveling kit

Looking for someone who has recently done or is about to do a leveling kit for a 2017-2019 6.7L Superduty 4x4. I am needing the stock bolts from the spring seats so I can remove my leveling kit. I have the spacers at the bottom of the springs. I will gladly pay shipping and throw in a few extra bucks for your troubles if you would be so kind and ship those to me.

Thanks in advance brothers!

Gotta know the size and thread pitch.

I've been looking for bolts in the same situation as the OP. Taking out my spacer and putting in Icon 2.5" springs.

So far I have found that they are 14mm (dia), thread pitch unknown, but likely 1.5, which is normal coarse thread metric.

For a two inch spacer kit from Rough country the instructions say it includes a 14mm dia x 90 mm (length) new bolt.

So 90 mm minus 2 inches leaves you roughly 40 mm in length for the stock bolts.

Oh and the Ford dealership here (likely everywhere else too) is completely useless for this. Their computer only shows a ghost picture of the spring seat and bolt.

And of course "well the computer doesn't show that part" response.

So 90 mm minus 2 inches leaves you roughly 40 mm in length for the stock bolts.
I got that roughly as well. I emailed the manufacturer of the leveling kit and asked him what size bolts they used and I got this response.

"Hi,

Thanks for your purchase. We do not know the length of the stock bolts. Our bolts are M14X2X100mm.



Thanks"

Still didn't include what grade bolts they were. I took a picture of my bolts to see if I could see a grade through all the dirt and I think I can make out 8.8, which is a metric grade so I think I just about figured it out.

Ya, my dealership told me I had to buy the whole axle assembly for $900+ dollars because the bolt didn't come separately. What a joke.

I thought it was that easy but just decided to check to be safe. Home Depot, Lowes, and Tractor Supply all don't have anything bigger than M12 in the stores. You can find M14 online at the Depot but you'd be SOL in person.

Im trying to avoid bumming a ride to the store once I get the truck apart.

This is my solution.

I found these on amazon fairly cheap. Factory bolt would be ideal but these should work.

And they are 10.9 not 8.8 so they are a higher grade. I would think factory and the leveling kit stuff is 8.8 grade.

You're right too, 2.0 pitch is coarse thread, 1.5 is finer.
