Can i buy shackle bolts locally?

bought a brand new set of shackles and installed them last night, of course the 4th and final grease-able bolt i went to "grease", the grease zerk broke off. I'm not really expecting Quadratec to do anything about it...has anyone ever bought a grease-able shackle bolt locally like from Fastenal or someplace? They look to be grade 8, 1/2" maybe, not sure on the length either, anyone have the exact measurements? :punk:

Yeah they jst screw in, you may need and "easy out" to get it out
Depends on how close it broke. Can probably get a wrench (recommended) or vice grips on it. Just don't crush it if you try vice grips.

Some of the more inexpensive greasable bolts are press in. But if you can get it out just drill, tap and install a threaded zerk. Might want to buy enough to do them all. Sooner or later.

I picked up my grade 8 bolts from TSC (tractor supply company) with washers and lock nuts... I took one with me to match length. The stock were fine threaded and the ones I purchased were corse threaded. Just meant I had to get nuts for them as well...
