i found my factory bolts from my 2016.

2in long, not 1.75 or 1.5 thread pitch, my tap and die kits dont go bigger than 1.75 but 2.0 is probably it.

cant imagine the bolts are different. if one of yall need them let me know.

Up to 2016 that lower spring seat bolt was only serviced with the lower spring seat so there's no information about the bolt size
For 2017 and up the spring seat is not listed in the catalog at all
I even checked the HVBOM for a 2018 we have in the shop and there's nothing listed

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.

Dorman brand

Did these bolts fit your stock spring seat?

First time post! Not sure if I'm doing this correctly, but I stumbled upon this thread looking for an answer to a different question.

I am about to install a 2" Rough Country spacer on my 2019, and am willing to photograph and provide you with all of the bolt specifications if that helps. I'm going to travel tomorrow through Monday, but plan on doing the install upon my return unless I can squeeze it in today. Let me know if that helps.

I would appreciate if anyone happens to know of and can direct me to a thread regarding whether it's advisable to install a track bar relocation bracket when using a 2" block at the the bottom of the coil.

You can get away without installing a track bar drop bracket. It would be better to install a drop bracket or even better to get a longer adjustable track bar and replace the factory one. That way it would be simple to return to stock if ever needed (if you saved your stock parts).
