2004 F250 Rear Shock Bolts

Hi All,

Anyone know the size of the lower rear shock bolts for this truck? Helping a buddy change his shocks this weekend and I know they are going to be really rusted so wanted to have a new set on hard in case we need to cut them off.

Thanks in advance.

I just did my 2005 F350 dually last weekend and they were 8mm (lower) and 15mm (upper) if I recall correctly.

Not sure if the 250 would be the same.

Depends on year. my 2016 lowers are 18mm nut, 15mm bolt. Upper is an 18mm nut with a non removable stud.

The lower bolt and nut + upper nut are to be disposed and replaced anytime they are removed anyway (per workshop manuals). They stretch over time, just side to side leverage from the shocks.

Really, any suspension hardware should be replaced after its been removed. Cheap insurance imo.
