Default Exhaust Manifold Bolts

Anyone ever found a kit to replace these stock bolts? I tossed the stock bolt hardware when I swapped in headers a few years ago... and the headers might be coming back out.

If you can find one of them, head to the local hardware store, and match them. that's what i did when i lost the bolts for my exhaust.

Yeah they are long gone. Figured i'd never reuse the hardware due to rust and age, so they ended up at the scrap yard.

a hardware store like home depot should have the bolts you need. that is where i buy most of the bolt i use. i think they even have stainless steel bolts if you want them. if you need studs you might have to order them at an auto parts store or use threaded rod.

If you get around to it, that would be pretty cool. If you fear that they may snap, then don't bother. I'm not worth that much :P

That doesn't sound like a bad idea at all with the stainless. The stage 8's arn't holding.

i bought steel bolts for my manifolds before i discovered home depot sold stainless steel bolts. if you plan on keeping the truck stainless steel bolts might be worth the extra money. i think eventually i would like to get stainless steel bolts so they won't rust up and be a pain to remove. i hate when the heads practically rust off like this.

I believe dorman makes replacement exhaust bolts and the studs. I think they are usually in the Help! Section.

Just pull a header bolt and match up the threads off that. The front ones are usually easily reached.

Couldn't find the dorman manifold bolts, only down tube bolts. Exhaust leak got worse today, so I decided to order them through dodge. They will be here Saturday morning.
