Default Front shock mounting bolts

I am going to replace my drive shaft shortly to see if it helps with some mystery knocking. At the time I will be replacing the front shock mounting bolts as mine look like they will not survive the job, they are rusted to f...

I have found these on ICP LINK 40 seems a bit steep for 4 bolts! But needs must, however I have two questions, 1. is there anything similar for cheaper or better for similar price? 2. Should I replace for OEM spec or should I take this opportunity for an upgrade? I am not planning on doing anything major to the car, apart from a couple of niggles I am fine with it as is.

Thanks

Be very surprised if yours are that bad if they are get the ICP ones bought as they are the camber bolts as well.

I'm sure there is no need to replace your current bolts. Soak them in penetrating fluid first. If the threads are intact they will be fine to use again. They are big pieces of metal, for them to rust beyond use, the rest of the car will be dust by now. Contact a breakers if you don't want to pay new price. I'd only use OEM.
