NO, not grade 8. These bolts need to flex. Grade 8 will snap. Get grade 5 or get OEM bolts

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!

I tried getting OEM Ford can't get me them and I can't find them online nor can wait. The guy at ford said grade 8 but true they have no flex. OK so grade 5 bolts and a bolt sleeve.

Yea the washer that goes on the bottom has like a flare on top so it goes in the bottom bushing.

Yeah steel body bushing/retainer. The top and bottom "retainers" slide into each other

Could I substitute the retainers with something instead of paying 25 a retainer?

Edit: Also on the truck diaphragm I see no upper retainer but still for $75 just for a nut welded to a washer welded to a sleeve I think I can make that at home for less money and a few tack welds.
Ok on summit racing I see a energy bushing set up with the retainers all energy is selling is sleeves for a bot as a retainer. I was thinking of getting something like that from the hardware store. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/en...eJXTjNJifw_wcB

That set is not for a Ford pickup, so they are different. Energy suspension has you reuse the steel retainers in their poly mounts. Our trucks take a #44107

You can reproduce the steel retainer, just make them the same as the original design

That's my idea just get sleeves and a washer and tack it together.
