Part Number 90110-10016
10-1.25P x 53.4-34.7

From the notes on item 42330A HERE

They're not a standard length you can find at a hardware store. I tried 2 hardware stores. Rather than running around town I just ordered them.

yes u are right, there isnt even a 55mm listed in 1.25 mm pitch
a 60 mm and cut it down, they are 7.51 for 10 plus shipping, so might as well just buy the right part.

Fully agreed on the easy-out thing.

Drilling is definitely a legitamate strategy and just depends on the bolt that I'm working with. Use whatever is more appropriate and less likely to damage the part your working with.

For the record, cutting a slot in the bolt head doesnt always work. I ended up having to cut off the whole head. The threads are seized in the stub of the old differential.

They do make these amazing things called "bolt-out kits", in it is a reverse drill bit wide tooth, along with a reverse threaded expanding screw head. You drill the center of the bolt, screw it in and the screw tightening in reverse loosens the seized and stripped bolt, then have it that bolt replaced. It's the best and most convenient $25 you will ever spend especially with cars 10+ yrs old.

Yes but be warned when you break an easy-out or similar tool that is hardened tool steel, its very difficult to then drill it out. I had HSS and cobalt drills and got no where. I had to buy a new exhaust manifold.

I havent met an easy out I can't break. And then you're screwed. Try drilling out a hardened steel bit.

Besides, there just not much room down there to work.
