Working on a 95 Continental(same in that respect as a taurus till 07). Due to the salt the front M14X100 partial thread strut bolts needed tons of pounding, impacting, and hammering to get out. One is a bit bent and the nuts are a bit mushroomed (but they slide in fine) and the nuts can be tightend. Wondering if I should replace this hardware? It is about $60 with a discount and there is no aftermarket. I don't really trust hardware store bolts, and the flanged head is impossible to find. Being that there is no aftermarket I would say these bolts are just put back with locktite and the customer sent on his way.
