Default Replacement lower shock through bolt

I need replacement lower shock bolts. These are the bolts that hold the shock to the lower a-arm. Anyone ever buy replacements locally?

Autozone apparently has a "shock bolt kit" but I'd rather not pay $6 for a kit of bolts and use just one bolt when I want to replace all four bolts as I complete the swap.

I do have a local Fastenal, I plan to go see them tomorrow to get a replacement unless someone has better knowledge of where I can get them.

Just spend 6 bucks, what if you screw up the others by accident? Are you really gonna go back to the store for another bolt?

Chad, that bolt is only $1.22 Mazda list. Just get it from the stealer.

The stealer is over 80 miles from me.

I found a better option. Advanced Auto has a huge assortment of 10.9 metric bolts just for this purpose. New bolts and nuts for all four corners, total of $3.85.
Thanks for the reply though, glad to know someone cares.

When I post threads like this it's because I have no dealer to go to. I have advanced, autozone, napa, oreilly, fastenal, lowes, and ace. My local ace sucks *** too fwiw.
