Broken torsion bolt replacement???

So I broke one of my bolts and I am wondering if it has to be one of the same type of bolts or can I get away with using like a grade 8 from the hardware store?? Thanks

try a bolt out of an Explorer if you can find one.
It should be the same, same bolt same length and same thread, ,

I know your on the other side of the water from me but if your in norfolk ever there is Tidewater Fasteners ( Screw Products i think is what they are called now )
2314 Ingleside Road
Norfolk, VA 23513-4546

There is also another place is in Ocean View its a hardware store that has tons of bolts and such. Not sure of the address...

I think your best bet would be the Dealer

10 or 12x1.25. I've run a different bolt w/out issue, until the t-bar bolt came in at the local ford dealership. Didn't really effect the ride or anything

is the head broke or the whole bolt? if just the head leave it, it will be fine until the next time you need to take it apart.

use some heat next time and it wont break.
