hardware store? good new grade 8 bolts might not look original, but will do the job. might need to attack the square holes with a properly sized drill bit, but that's no biggie.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?

Chuck the kits are available bolts, stampped shakles and bushings for about $30-$40 at many of the mail order shops. Try Ground Up or many of the others. I even think the WCA can get them for you. I can't remember the name but got a catalog in the mail at the office today and I saw them in there. If you are still looking on Monday I'll find get you the company name.

Chuck - I just figured it out!! The WCA is under new ownership and is now the WCC (Worldwide Camaro Club) Eckler (corvette fame) is the new owner (their catalog I refered to in my other post) and their web site is http://ecklerscamaro.com/

They have the shackles you are looking for...
