Sway Bar Link problem

My sway bar link bushings were shot. So I bought 2 new links. They only come with the top bolt for each side. I reused the bottom bolt on the passenger side. I have went to every part store in town and tried finding a replacement bottom driver side sway bar link bolt. I am using something temporary right not. But where could I go about getting an OEM or OEM-matched bolt? NAPA told me that it is a Ford OEM part.

One of those stores has to have something same diameter grade 8 and at least close in length. I can't imagine it would to be the perfect length, even if so just hack it down.
