Passenger side exhaust manifold bolt

Anyone experiencing broken exhaust manifold bolts? I developed a heat shield rattle out of nowhere recently and found the bolt closest to the firewall on the passenger side exhaust manifold had broken off.

I have enough to work with to get it out but was just wondering if anyone else has had this issue?

This is just a broken bolt holding the manifold to the head. I did get it out and have another coming from the dealer.

The dealership wants 4.50 a bolt. I was contemplating replacing them all as I've now had all of the bolts out recently to replace the drivers side manifold and remove the broken bolt on the passenger side. Anyone know where I can get manifold bolts any cheaper? I browsed around online and only found them included in header kits but not sold separately.
