Where to order OEM hardware?
Replacing some front suspension parts on my car and the book reccomends replacing all hardware as it has already been torqued down once. Anyone know of a good website to purchase these things from besides the stealership? Thanks

ive had my front end apart a bunch of times , as long as the bolts are still in good shape i think its safe to reuse. i like the local hardware store. they usually have a good selection of metric grade 8 bolts for wayyyyyy less than the dealer.

Ok thats what I did, thanks!

One of our vendors, rock auto may have some stuff that your looking for. If your tearing apart your front suspension parts, don't forget about the sway bar endlinks. They wear out fairly quickly & most times you don't notice they're bad till you take them off.

Already looked at rock auto, and sway bar end links have been replaced but thanks for your help. Rock auto seems to carry more compenant parts rather than hardware.

Have you priced the hardware at the dealer? I bought mine at the dealer, the prices were not as bad as I thought, but it does vary between dealers.

The front A-Arm bolts are the odd-balls I would get from a dealer - special item....
