    Default Torx Bolt Size - Rear Suspension Dampers

    Hi all,

    I need to undo the rear dampers as I cant adjust the rebound without removing the shock from its bolted position

    Anyways... anyone know the size of the torx bolts that hold the rear dampers in place as I need to go buy one

    Cheers

    The above is right, E20 for the shock top and bottom and E18 for the lower arm.
    I bought the Draper Expert 14 piece socket set that goes from E4 to E24 for £18.

    Its all confusing coz they still call them torx sockets, had to buy them to do my suspension at the weekend but as most of the other bolts are torxs it will be a great addition in my tool box.
