    Need help finding a screw

    I think I've asked before, but didn't have any luck so trying again.

    I have the sway bar kit for the merv. The one with the silver red and blue bars. There are 4 ball stud screws that screw into rockers. For the life of me I cannot find anywhere that sells these screws. I've been to 2 lhs and they are unable to order any. I've tried emailing the maker of the sway bar but no luck.

    They are 2.5mm x 10 ball stud screws. I don't know the size of the ball. If anyone has some better search techniques than me or knows of a dealer that sells these screws I'd appreciate it.

    I work at a hardware store and I sell lot's of metric bolts and screws. Never have I seen those. But I thought about them for a little bit and could you maybe use the screws that go from the axle carrier to the a-arms? You would still be missing that flare just below the ball head. That's the closest thing I can think of anyway.

    What about the screws that are used on the servo saver set? Probably too short, just trying to give options.
    Nobody is born with experience

    i can't see your original picture on this thread.....

    but.....


    if it is this in the upper right corner of the picture, i am sure you could use any threaded screw with a ball on top..... look into team associated products, i know they are heavy into the ball studs like that, my old rc10t is covered in those things

    What do I search for though? If you google even 'ball stud screw' not a single relevant link shows up let alone something more specific like 'ball stud screw 2.5'. Try it, you'll see.
