Does anyone have a photo of the rear 1988 suspension and what bolts go where? I took mine apart long ago and just now trying to put back together. I have a whole box of blots some have allen or Torx heads but seem to be too small or to long or not enough of them to do both sides. I need 4 bolts for the front and rear bars in the cradle and the Spindle. Also for the long rod that runs from the front of the cradle and the Spindle on the bottom. All of the books I have looked at just tell the how much to torque them to be not the size or type. Thanks in advance.

The lateral link bolts at the cradle are 12mm threads with 18mm hex heads w/ self-locking nuts The lateral link bolt at the knuckle is a LONG 12mm threads with 18mm hex head w/ self-locking nut The trailing link bolts are 14mm threads with 20-21mm hex heads w/ self-locking nuts
The caliper to knuckle bolts are 12mm threads with Torx heads. There are FOUR of these. They should have residue of factory thread locker on them. The "corner" at the top circumference of the head is sharper than the hub to knuckle bolts.
The hub to knuckle bolts are 12mm threads with Torx heads. There are SIX of these. The "corner" at the top circumference of the head is more rounded than the caliper to knuckle bolts.
