I'm sure these are the original holden bolts and are correct as I labeled them when I took them out but the rear one that threads into the arm seems too short, with the spring washer and disc shield  the end of the bolt is about  4mm short of the end. Is this normal? Bolts are 30mm or 1 1/4" looks like it needs a 1 1/2"

Just found this in the parts book which shows it as 1 1/4" so seems correct but would like it to go to at least the end of the threaded hole

It is a long time since I played with Tirana’s, but when I did I don’t recall ever having the steering arm bolts that short. I’m certain I would have questioned it too. It had UC steering arms on HK-WB stubs but can’t recall if I used Holden/Statesman bolts or Torana/Sunbird ones
