    FWIW I hate open enders with a passion, I'll only use them as a last resort.

    Unfortunately you need to use an open ender at the t/case end for the bolt head, but if you leave the t/case in gear you can use that to tighten the nut against and get it tensioned properly.

    Should fit ok, high tensile and cheap enough.

    That's what I use on the donut bolts.

    The problem isn't the bolt length, it's getting a ring spanner onto the nut at the diff end.

    I think it should be the bolt end towards the diff?

    Well on my sals diffs you cannot fit the bolts into the holes if the bolt end is towards the diff.
