He knows exactly how many there are. He is asking for details of precisely which variant of Sorento it is that you have. There is a reason why the front prop shaft has been removed and it is not good news!

I suggest that you devote some time to browsing the historical posts on this forum.

 A thank you Bones,it is a Sorento SE model ,yes I had already come across some articles on the subject of why they had been removed ,and  those articles most probably originated from this site,however trying to find any info on the bolts is most frustrating ,as you allude to this is porbpably not going to be a happy outcome even with a new prop shaft fitted or tried.Any info on the bolts would be really welcome,thanks ,T.Max.

Welcome to the forums tmax.

Maybe ask you now start a thread in the Sorento sub forum as this section is only for introducing yourself.

I think they are 10mm shouldered bolts not sure of the length, but they will be 10.9 strength classification.

I'm in the same situation. Did you get accurate info on the size/length of bolt?
I have a 6front 4rear bolt shaft for an automatic with TOD.
