    Anyone know the size of the sway bar frame bolts? I've been trying to find some and so far no luck, so I'm just going to find some bolts at a hardware store.
    I know the Fox bolts are M10x1.5x38mm grade 10.9 but wasn't sure if they were the same.

    On the front bar?

    Not sure if this helps but when I did mine one was stripped and I went too the local dealer, surprisingly they had 4 of the brackets with the studs and nuts that slide into the frame in stock so I replaced them all. Iirc they were like 10$ each.

    My local dealership didn't have any. I found a mustang scrap yard that had them but they wanted $20 for just the bolts.

    20$ for bolts from a scrapper that's crazy!
    can they not just order the parts in? What about another nearby dealer?
    Either that or find a normal scrap yard that would be a couple bucks for them...

    Ok, I found one of the old brackets I pulled off. The head is thin and round and below it is a square section where the bolt attaches to the clip/bracket so I'm doubting a hardware store would have the exact bolt you need...

    Yeah that's different than the Fox bolts lol. I hadn't thought about the fact that the V6s would use use the same bolts and I'm sure I can find one of those in a scrap yard lol

    Wish I would've seen this earlier. I was at Tresters in Milford today and they have like 10 SN and New Edge cars.

    It's not a big deal. I'll scout out a couple junk yards when I get home.
