I realized I didnít respond to earlier replies. Yes, the new bolt is different than the one that sheared and the bolt that came with the condor kit. The new bolt is grade 12.9 compared to 10.9 for the the sheared bolt and condor bolt. And Yes, Iím trying to find a grade 14.9 14mm 2.0 bolt with a larger shank. The guys at fastenal said that the threads should be the exact length of the thread connection on the differential. This is inline with what eschaider is saying. The smooth shaft is about quarter inch too short. And no, thatís what she said. My sheared in the thread area of the differential. I would think the weak spot is on exposed threads just before the differential?? And, yes Iím serious about looking other rear end options but I plan to drive my car as often as I can with the current setup. Iíll drive it like did before the bolt sheared and if it doesnít break again Ill follow the ďif it ainít broke donít fix itĒ until it does. Appreciate the responses. Thanks
