'08 Rear Diff Cover bolts
My True Trac will be here in the next day or so. I'm trying to get the parts together for the swap out of the diff and replace the cover.
In all the posts I've read, the '08 aluminum cover is thicker than my steel cover. I measure my stock bolts as 3/4" long. The last 1/8" of the bolt isn't threaded at all - just a point. In posts I've read about this swap, you need to use 1 1/4" bolts. Can you get away with 1" bolts? or is the aluminum cover really 1/2" thick? I'm having some trouble locating the bolts locally in the 1 1/4". They have 1" and 1 1/2".
Worst case, I'll get the factory bolts from the dealer.
