Where did you get the bolts for.....??

the steering rack on a M2 setup. I'm using the stock crossmember and can't find the right size or length bolt to hold the rack to the Xmember. I went to tractor supply and only found 6" bolts that were not long enough.

A local industrial fasteners supply house should have what you need. The franchised outlets will usually not have bolts longer than 6" as you have found out. You could also order them from McMaster Carr.

Well, I went to the local Ford stealership with part number in hand, guy behind the counter said that they are no longer supplied by Ford. So, I hit up the local junkyards on the way home and had no success. If anyone has some extra ones let me know if not I'm going to hit up the M2 boards.
