I believe the nut is a standard M14 and the bolt is a M12x45mm

what's correct installation for the strut rod bolt? Lost my driver side bolt on a turn yesterday. I was using a hardware store locknut, tried to get it as tight as I could. Locktite??

That hardware strore locknut may not be the higher grade of steel needed for the application. I'd suggest buying the genuine part if you don't have a local supplier that can sell you grade 8 metric hardware. It may even be a grade 10 piece of hardware. The bolt and nut should be torqued to spec with the weight of the car on the suspension. Probably something like 65-70ftlbs.
