I stripped my 2009 Lapierre spicy down 6 months ago for a respray while i was recovering from a back injury, and i have finally got round to reassembly. The problem is i cant remember how the bottom half of the top link goes back together. Its the bit where the top link/seat stay/shock all marry together. Whichever way i do it the bolt which goes through it is too short. I am sure the anodised fixation screws fix the seat stay and the top link, but with this configuration the bolt is too short. I would appreciate anyone who has assembled these parts that can help with a diagram or a few photos.

Thanks

Panic over i gave my workshop/office a good clearout and found a bolt which is an inch longer than the one i assumed was the correct one doh!!!! I have however discovered another problem and that is that there is a residue of powder coat inside the threads, so i need a tap to clean it out. I cant find any data but i measured the thread as m14 x 1.25 which if i am not mistaken is the same size as a spark plug. need a mechanic with a spark plug retapping tool now.
