Default Looking for a bolt.

So slapped on a Walker spring 35129 exhaust kit on my Outback while doing some aftermarket exhaust stuff. The bolts on the kit donít quite have enough threads on them to get the exhaust nice and tight as it should be. My question is what are the specs for the bolt so I try and get a shorter one/one with more threads.

What bolt?

Likely an M8x1.25 or M10x1.25 if it's going into an OE nut or hole, but I really have no idea what you're talking about.

He's talking about the bolts that hold exhaust parts together. I tried the same thing between my dp and mid pipe. Same issue.

I just used grade 8 bolts, nuts, and washers. Problem solved. Didn't even use the springs. Just be careful not to bend your flanges.

You can get some stainless washers to put under the head of the bolt to make up the length needed.

Why not get the correct hardware from Subaru?

I spent less than 30 minutes and about 5 dollars getting some hardware from Home Depot. It's far beyond adequate to do the job.

I could have ordered the "right" parts from Subaru, but that would have cost 4 times as much, and I would have had to wait two days.

While I would suggest going to Subaru for most things, some are really not necessary.
