Rear Shock Lower Bolt??
 
So I am replacing my HR rear struts because they have blown for the 4th time and the lower bolts are seized like hell. I have been to the ford dealership and all auto stores with no luck trying to find the bolts and nuts for the left and right shocks. Does anyone know an online source that has them?? I cant find crap.

Most all the suspension bolts are M12 10.9 grade bolts. You can get them at a hardware store, (menards is cheapest around me)

Find a better dealer. If they don't have them in stock they can order them.

No kidding. I have two dealers close by, they are within 3 kms of each other. One sold a balljoint bolt for $4.50, the other $8.45 (which I paid because I didn't want to wait for the other place to order [mad]).
