Who sells bolt kits?

Sience I kinda destroyed the bolts getting them out of the control arms up front I needs some new ones.
I need to find something either stainless or plated with something ultra protective.
I need hardware for all the control arms as well as spindles.
Any idea who sells this type of kit?
Cant really go to the harware store sience they are a little specialized

Closest thing that I could find in the ARP catalog was on page 69, something called "Front mandrel bolts"
Kinda look like what im after but not quite sure.
In my travels I found this company here
http://www.boltlocker.com/page4.html
Anyone ever done business with them?

yellow zinc (iridite?) plated grade 8 bolts are stronger, but stainless will never rust. I would not use SS for suspension or anything that was a critical fastener.
I would go for the zinc myself. It lasts ok.

Yea they do, but they dont appear to be coated with anything, paints wont work so I need some type of plating.
Looks like the grade 8 bolts from bolt locker would work out well, considering I need every bolt in the kit.
Thanks for taking the time to help me out fellas.

I'll throw one more into the mix: www.totallystainless.com

They carry a line of high-strength bolts for suspensions. Worth a look.
