The tabs for mounting the control arms are m10 from factory but need to be drilled out to 14mm with drill bit. We sell this drill bit as well if you do not have one. We upgrade the bolt size to a stronger larger m14 bolt.

Air supension vehicles and vehicles with headlight level arms that attach to the arms are installed using tube clamp and ball socket and nut provided. Position clamp in same orientation as OEM and reattach the sensor arm.
