I have a set of Whiteline Rear Lateral Links I want to go about installing. Had a false start this weekend if you saw my thread :p.

I was checking out my FSM and was trying to find part numbers for some of the bolts/nuts since I want to replace them.



Does anyone know the part numbers for the bolts in red? And possibly the lock nuts that go with them.

Any tips for the e-brake cable and blocking one of the nuts? Do I need to disassemble the whole thing? Any insight would be great.

Thanks.

Oh, looks like a found one of them from an older post.

(bolts: 20540AA000) (nuts: 20550AA010) (washers: 900335056)

Thats for the really long bolt. Any ideas for the shorter ones?

if your still wondering you just have to take the bracket off the trailing arm that goes around the parking brake cable and use a 19mm wrench to take of the nut on the longer bolt

I just had to remove that outer bolt 2 weeks ago when i did my drum to disc swap. Dont want to scare you, but prepare for hell. I had the car the lift many times before removing that bolt, and everytime i lifted it up i sprayed those bolts with pb blaster. The passenger side bolt still failed to come out peacefully for me. I ended up having to cut the bolt and bushings out and replacing with new ones from the dealership. I did everything to try to get those bolts out, but they wouldnt budge. My cost was like $68 for the bolt both bushings and nut, that was with my discount from my shop that i work at. So dont be surprised if they failed to budge especially if the car has been a northeast car its whole life. I hope you do this with time to spare bc i did this with only 2 days left before i had to leave for school. i wish i had done this earlier bc i would have just pushed the car off the lift and ordered groupn bushings had i time for it. O well live and learn, good luck.

Yea, thats what I'm gathering. Luckily this isn't my primary car. Maybe I should just cart it down to Area1320 and let you guys wrestle with it :p. Need a few other minor things down anyways.

I finally got around to ordering parts. I ordered from subaruparts.com

20540AA111 x 2 (inner bolt)
20540AA001 x 2 (outer bolt)
20550AA010 x 4 (nuts)
900335056 x 8 (washers)

I have Whiteline Toe Lockout Bolts and they should take the place of the other inner bolt. I hope I ordered the right stuff :x.

I'll probably document my install.
