    I am in need of the rear suspension upper radius arm bushing attachment bolt. The bolt fixes the forward bushing of the upper radius arm to the frame forward leaf spring bracket. The bolt is 14mm diameter and the thread is 14mm 1.5. The overall length of the bolt is 4.5 inches. Thank you

    I have a couple from an old Fiat that measure about 4" total length.
    This size (14 x 1.5 x 120) appears to be easily available online.
    If you have a local fastener supply outlet, they should have them on the shelf.

    Please be aware that bolt or hex screw length is indicated as the length of the (14mm dia.) shank only and also in millimeters (not inches).
    Head height/length is not included. So your OEM bolt might be M14-1.5 x 105, which is not "standard" or commonly available length, but either 110mm or 120mm long should work fine and can be cut to length if too long. You may also want to make sure the strength is at least "8.8" or higher.

    M 14 x 1.5 is not "normal" thread, it is fine thread and not very common. the normal thread is 1,75
    14 mm diameter is not common in 8.8, more 10.9

    Art, check out McMaster-Carr online catalog for #91180A802. It might work.

    Thank you to everyone for the helpful input. I appreciate it. I am interested in pursuing an original (previously used) bolt from a 330 salvage. If anyone knows who may have one and how I could contact them please reply. If a used bolt is not available I will go for a modern replacement. Thanks.

    No one can see it. I would think that a new one is safer than an old one if the new one fits.
