    Is that the nut for bolt no26 in the photo Erik?

    I'd hazard a guess at 5/16 unc, the almost imperial equivalent of an M8 x 1.25

    If not then I'd suggest the next imperial size up which would be 3/8 unc the nearly equivalent to an M10 x 1.5

    It'll be different to mine as that's long since lost its original suspension parts.

    Apologies Erik, at least I was right on the unc part. 7/16 M12 equivalent then.
