Wheel bearing/hub bolts??

Hey all,
So I broke a front axle and had to drive on it a couple miles.Yeah I know big mistake,but it was after midnight and snowing and freezing cold.I only drove like 5mph.So anyway no surprise the busted axle chewed half the heads off the bolts that hold the hub assembly in place.I figured no biggie Ill go to the 'yard and grab a few.Well the 'yards around here apparently feel that salvage parts are 'good as new',and wont even sell me the bolts unless I buy the whole hub assembly.I figure 'hey no prob I could get a few miles out of a used hub assembly'.Well the prob is that they think a USED hub assembly is worth at least $75.00!!! Yeah I can get Timkens new for $95.00,no thanks! SOOOO,my question is does anyone know where to get these bolts at a reasonable price or has anyone just used high-grade hardware store bolts? The hardware store stuff makes me nervous cause these bolts are holding your whole world together when youre cruisin down the highway!

There size 12x1.75 by 80mm long and make sure you get grade 10.25 and not 8.8 like i did haha. They should be available at any decent hardware store.

Re: Wheel bearing/hub bolts??

hey thanks for the reply.Yeah that was the plan as far as grade,just wanted to know if anybody had used 'em.How long have you run 'em? were they just standard hex-head? That 12point head seems unnecessary.

I rocked a standard head with a built in collar. and like I said 80mm was just perfect for length

Re: Wheel bearing/hub bolts??

thanks for the info,I guess my main thing is that I dont want to pay $7 for a bolt.That would be $42 for all of em,which I need because of a previous axle failure.Just tryin to get it back together cheap because I just bought a bunch of parts.Then again this is a life-support part,so cost shouldnt factor in.

Re: Wheel bearing/hub bolts??

Oddly the only catalog I see now that 'lists' it is 4wd and they're expensive on it. You could call the other places and ask. If you're paying more than $3 or $4 each you're paying too much.

wow, they're tards it sounds like. Jeff (JrTxJ) already posted the part number, use it on zmjeeps.com and you'll find the bolts for like a buck or three iirc. I use them for most of the bolts I buy because they're about the cheapest I can find aside from going directly to grainger/fastenal etc.

Not sure where this 10.25 is coming from... second time I've seen you use it

EDIT: ah crap, looks like Jeff also posted the zmjeeps link for them, I should read the whole thread before posting

EDIT2: Further, junkyards around me consider bolts "pocket items" (not kidding) - if you bring one up and try to pay they look at you funny and say to take it. Shoot me a PM if you end up needing some other wacky bolt you can't find anywhere, and they're yours for cost of shipping the next time I hit the yard. Just don't ask for a serp belt tensioner bolt or a gas tank bolt, I hate those darn things and buy them new just like every other sucker

Re: Wheel bearing/hub bolts??

The part number came from the MOPAR parts catalog (I've verified it just in case) so it should fit great.
