Default Lateral link nut and bolt, what size?

I have to replace my drivers side lateral link in my 04 PT and forgot to see what size the nut and bolt are where it attaches to the frame.

I'm at work right now and wanted to pickup the correct size sockets on my way home tonight, to prevent a trip back to the nearest Sears. I had a rough morning and ran off without checking the size that I needed ro remove this, does anyone happen to know right off hand what size socket/wrench I'll need to remove these?

I was thinking that the bolt is a different size than the nut, but can;t remember for sure.

Blanking, here, what's the lateral link? That goes from frame to the bellcrank thingy?

NUT, Hex Flange Lock, M12x1.75,
Watts Link to Bellcrank

all the info on nut

Nothing on bolt

M12 is usually 18mm wrench size on Mopar

Yes, it's the bar that goes from the frame to the bell crank. I've seen them called Watts Links too, but the part that I bought says Lateral Link and the bell crank says Watts Link, so who knows. lol

I thoguth that it was a 22mm, which is the one missing from my toolset. I've had the link off before to replace the bushings, but this time the nylon nut gave me a problem where ti goes to the bell crank and I messed up the threads getting the nut off, so I had to buy the entire bar assembly.

Thanks for the reply, I'm gonna try to tackle it tomorrow night.
