Radiator mounting clips

Can I buy these at O Reilly's or Auto zone or are these a dealer or radiator shop item? Not interested in fighting a nut and bolt in the lower holes. Maybe wouldnt be too bad??? Thanks.

I think I got mine at O'Reillys but any of the regulars should have them just bring clip and bolt with you there are different sizes!

Put them in the sock of torx bolts you're going to smack the Chrysler engineers with. I used 1/4" bolts with a nut. Not too bad to get a wrench back there unless you have fat wrists, my arm barely fits back there but it's worth it.

Well, OSH by my house had identical replacements 1/4-20 extruded u nuts. .69 each. Got 6 new bolts and washers, 6 new u nuts for $5. Score! Be careful though, they have a 'long' version. You need the 'regular' if you are replacing these.
