Felt like this fits here the best, but I was running through my mind of adjusting my front cradle, but remembered that that bolts are TTY. I've read up that they are becoming/became hard to find, I'd like to find a set or 2 for front and rear if possible, but I'm clueless of where to find them? I've looked around and read that a lot of places that used to carry them, have a scarce amount or none at all.

With that said, would a grade 8 bolt suffice in replacement of those TTY bolts if I couldn't find them? and If they are still available where would one find some?

Sorry for asking, cause I'm sure its been asked plenty of times.

Check out this thread;

http://www.gtoforum.com/f39/rear-cradle-subframe-bolts-27001/

GMPARTSDIRECT and GMPARTSHOUSE list the bolts based on the part numbers GM4life listed in post #8.

If it was up to me I would pay the extra cash and get the factory bolts instead of trying alternate bolts. I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Hope this helps.

Oh yeah, Id rather pay for the right stuff then anything else, but I said that about replacing the bolts with a different one if I couldn't find them. But I did happen to get a hold of someone form GMPARTSHOUSE, and they said they would have to be special ordered, so Im assuming they could get them.

I wouldn't have a problem with a good grade of bolt. The problem is going to be finding ones long enough especially the front ones. You can check the front fairly easily without undoing it. It's just a pointer system unlike the rear which uses a jig.
