lower control arm bushings bolts

Hi

Does anyone know what the bolt and nut size is for the lower control arm of a 2003 astro rwd.

Are both the same size?

I figure I may have to cut them off, I'd like to have new ones ready.

Bolts size? Gm part numbers?

Re: Fuel trims and mass air flow

Hi
Yup.... It's to cold in southern Ontario for me to check it... Lol

The intake manifold was redone in April 2020
It doesn't change fuel trim whether it is hot or cold
So I'm hoping it is a line or something easy

Re: Re: engine under heating /not heating up enough

Makes sence.... I used a poor choice of words.. Sry. The hoses are soft... Once in awhile slight pressure... But definitely not firm by any means.

Re: Re: engine under heating /not heating up enough

Hi... Thanks.... I'm in the process of getting that done... How much pressure and how long should it hold it? If I made an error I think it's a bolt that's into a water jacket... I didn't put thread sealer on it... That's the only thing I can think of. BTW I figured out why the fuel trims were pegge...

Re: Re: engine under heating /not heating up enough

Hi.... Thanks for your help.... And that's what most people say... But... Why no pressure? You literally can drive hwy for 30 mins and pull the rad cap off. Sometimes.... There's a little pressure but not the rock hard hose before the engine change.
