    TAB (Trailing arm bolts) Options *** Split From WANTED***

    I am looking for a pair of the hardened Trailing arm replacement bolts. (TABs).
    I don't want to have to buy 50 of them!
    Has anyone purchased a large lot? Looking to sell some off? I have been putting this off for too long.
    Thanks
    Charlie

    Deloreango has several different choices including Inconel. I believe DMCMW also offers these bolts.

    For what its worth I have been running standard class 12.9 socket head bolts without issue and much more power than a stock application.

    Go with Inconel for peace of mind. I've been running the DMCMW Inconel TABs on my car since early 2016 (although purchased in 2014), from memory they cost around $150. Edit - checked back on invoices, $139.99 + shipping.

    They are $89.99 from DeLoreanGo (and if you spend an extra $11 it would then qualify for free shipping)

    Thanks guys...
    Without my starting a major war, Is it worth paying the money for the Toby Tabs?

    There's no need to find a pair of Toby tabs anymore. As Mike said, there are two suppliers of Inconel bolts for $100 or less. Here is the guy who is selling them on FaceBook:

    Toby TABs - Inconel
    DMCMW I-Bolts - Inconel
    DeloreanGo TABs - Inconel

    Inconel is inconel, at the end of the day it's your money so buyers choice if you feel there is more value in hunting down a set of Toby TABs.

    Edit - 4 options for Inconel - in fact I believe the TAB 718 bolts are the ones stocked by DeLoreanGo, but I'll defer to Arran to confirm on that. At least with multiple options available, it helps drive more competitive pricing for us owners.

    Digging around on the Facebook page that Chris linked to, it looks like pricing is "$67/Pair +$7 Shipping & Handling". So that appears to be your cheapest option for a set of Inconel bolts.

    We also Have the Inconel bolts in stock for about $80- a pair with double nuts and washers. We do this to preclude loosening because even the strongest bolts will bend in this application if allowed to loosen. No one else currently supplies the extra fasteners
    we use.
