MM Caster/Camber Plates Question

I'm finally about to install all of my suspension parts and was reading the install instructions on these. They state (quoted from their site):

"We highly recommend replacing the strut-tospindle
mounting hardware while installing this kit. Ford
considers this hardware to be one-time use only. The new
OEM hardware can be purchased from your local Ford
dealer or Maximum Motorsports (part# MMF-3). Four (4)
bolts W714652 S439 and four (4) nuts W714653 S900
are required."

Where do you guys think the cheapest place to buy these parts are? MM has a kit here, but you need two of course: Strut to spindle mounting hardware kit, 2005-2014 Mustang.

Thanks for the help.

I bought some from CJs....I've since taken them off and put them back on a bunch of times. I wouldn't worry about them.

This has been asked so many time on this and other forums................I have replaced my OE bolts on any chassis modifications.................it's just about being safe...........Ford says in many bulletins that these are one time only bolts, the reason being the threads of the nut and bolt by design do not match perfectly. When it is torqued the first time by factory they bond and are almost impossible to loosen from vibration however the bond is created by recutting the threads during the initial torque and when you take them off it actually weakens the threads when you re-torque them again. Even after applying "blue" loctite it's not assured that it will hold.................especially after re-torquing them to 150lbft.
If you want to risk a $30/40k investment.......this is your decission, for me $50 for bolts and nuts is a no brainer.............it's your car do what you want.

Give this place a try, I've bought a lot of parts from them and they have got just about the best prices on the internet; LOWER COVER for 2014 Ford Mustang|DR3Z-17F828-AB

Well I guess the search function isn't working well here or on Google.

Thanks.

MM Caster/Camber Plates Question

I replaced mine and got them from the same place olerodder linked. They had them out pretty quickly. I actually spent over 100 in replacement nuts and bolts for my entire suspension. Honestly not sure it makes a difference now after doing a few of my friends cars and we didn't replace any hardware and we were still able to torque everything to spec. Not telling you to not replace it but if you don't it's not the end of the world in my opinion.

Here is a list of all the stuff I bought from a list ole rodder gave me
