Where can I find BL bolts?

When we did my bodylift my friend over torqued the left bolt nearest to the cab, so I can't get it out the right way so I'm going to tac weld a socket to it and hopefully get it out that way. Anyways I went to the local nut and bolt shop and the longest they had was the length of the ones nearest to the tailgate. I tested to see if It would tighten and it does but I don't think there's enough threads to call it safe. Could I use it?

Thanks for the replys guys, I checked out Lowes and they didn't have the right size. I didn't check Home Depot cause I figured since Lowes didn't have it they wouldn't but I will look there today. I'll also check out Fastenal. Thanks again!

Ok I officially have the worst luck ever!! Found the right size bolt at Home depot, went and and got the socket welded to my old bolt, came out easy got home to finish tightening the new bolt down and the threads snapped. So now I have to figure out how to get it out to put in a new bolt. Anybody got any ideas? Could my body lift mount come out since there isn't a bolt securing it?
