I have sourced similar grade 10.9 M8 x 1.25 x 30mm flange bolts that I will be using instead, and I will also be torquing them to factory specs.
I will also be re-using the hardened factory bolt spacers, since I cut them off of the factory bolts and drilled them out to fit over the threads of these bolts.
But with the reinforced bar the spacers (washers) are thinner then the ones without
