The lower eyelet has a 12mm inner diameter. The mounting stud on the trailing arm should measure approx. 11.9mm. If the hole is too small to fit on the lower mount, then the old shock sleeve has rusted in place and must be removed. Vice grips and heat from a propane torch will usually do the trick.
