    Drive-shaft to Differential Bolts ?

    What are the specs for the bolts that hold the drive-shaft to the rear differential ? (I believe there are 6 of them.)

    Next time they come out, should I upgrade to a higher grade bolt ?

    The OEM bolts should be more than sufficient for your needs. Make sure to put loctite on them if you ever remove and re-install them. The DSS CF 1 piece driveshaft uses similar bolts and calls for 57 ft/lbs.

    I've had them off a few times. I'd like to get some fresh ones in there. Kinda worried about spinning the allen wrench in the head.

    Just buy another set of OEM bolts if you're concerned. They are more than adequate.

    Anybody have a part number ? I'd rather order them online than make 2 trips to my dealer.

    Thanks.
