Well, the weld broke the first time I tightened the nut! We welded it again and it broke again. So we drilled it out and tapped it for a 5/16" fine thread bolt. I asked for metric, and nearly got thrown out of the shop....so.....standard it is!

Either way, this should hold. There are two spacer washers and the original lock washer holding the top of the shock on.

Thanks everyone!
