Default 8.8 Flange Bolts What size???

Every thing I have searched says they are 12mmx1.75 but I have bought 2 sets of them from different places and that is not the thread. Was there another one???

Re-tap to something more common. Or drill out and use nuts and bolts if you have the room. I can do this easily at my house if you need help, just bring the flange.

Those flange bolts are A really awkward thread size. Best wAy is a pic-n-pull. They ussually give them to you for free.

Yes it was 12x1.75. I went to ford and bought the bolts. They were 2 bucks each. I ran a tap and some lube through them about 5 times each. I guess they were just that gummed up. On another note I think the own bolts have a slightly lower profile thread but who knows. Any way it moves now. Thanks guys.
