Lower control arm bolts

i just swapped rear ends w/ someone and we accidently put my lower control arm bolts in his upper control arms and he left. so now my car has been on jackstands for a couple days becuause the rear is in by means the uppers but the lower bolts arent long enough to put the nut on.

anyway, i went to the ford dealership and they said Ford doesnt supply those bolts anymore. the salvage yards around here dont have anything newer than 1980s, and no mustangs even at that. i dont want to get them in the mail because they are only like $6/ea and i dont want to pay for shipping.

question is, are the 99+ LCA bolts the same size and length and whatnot as my 98s? does anyone know the dimensions? i know 98s are 106mm long, 38 (i think)mm of thread, and Type 8 bolt pattern.

**I have sigs turned off, so if you're asking for advice based on your mods, I can't see them**

Brandon, I would think that they would be the same, lower control arms, aftermarket ones that is, usually fit for a lot of different years including before and after 94-99+
