1997 Ford F150 backing plate bolts... can be replaced?

just wondering if these bolts can be replaced, i havent taken anything off yet to have a look but is the backing plate held on by a spline bolt or is it just 4 standard bolts? we went 4bying and we got hung up on something and we gotfree and heard somethig snap and thats what it was, really weird, wondering if they can be replaced or do i have to get a new rear end? the bolts were sheared off. Thanks alot i need as much help on this as i can get.

Use Grade 8 bolts available from any hardware store. The T bolts were used to speed production of the truck. Match the bolt shank size, probably 3/8".

I'd use fine thread grade 8 bolts as mentioned.

you may have to grind an edge of the bolt head a bit to get it sit flat against the axle end .
