Default Lower ball joint castle nut cotter pins

What's the proper part #'s for these?

Using the usual online sources (MJ Honda, etc.), there are two part #'s listed for these pins, both different lengths:

94201-30250 PIN, SPLIT (3.0X25)
94201-30450 PIN, SPLIT (3.0X45)

I've been to two local Honda dealers and neither claim to stock these. I have to assume I have the wrong part #'s, as I would sincerely hope they're not reusing these pins. I've tried to match these up at the HW stores, but most of them start at sizes much larger than what is on the nut.

Incidentally, I had these pins in an order from MJ Honda with a bunch of items, and these never arrived. I'll be calling to find out why, but it's a rather strange coincidence unless these are no longer stocked.

Was in Autozone yesterday. What's wrong with using the ones they sell?

Just use whatever fits. Hell, I've used a piece of wire before.

just go to autozone and get some.. as long as they fit they will work. i used a paperclip before......they are a safety feature just in case nut loosens

When I worked for Honda we would try to reuse the old pins unless they were in really bad shape. IIRC we had a tray or drawer with a bunch of cotter pins in it, we never used the actual Honda ones and no one ever buys them, that's why they never keep them in stock.
