Default Need bolts

I am converting my 87 Coupe to a 5.0. Complete down to the v8 fuel lines suspension, brakes, brakes lines and so on. The works. My question is where can i buy bolts and do i even need to? For example, i am putting in the V8 spindles and calipers. Where can i find the bolts to mount the struts to the spindle and the calipers to the spindles? I konw that the 4cyl spindle is bigger so i would think that the bolts would be to long for the strut mounts. Or will the 4cyl bolts work? I would like to buy new bolts for these sort of things.

Thanks for the help.

ok. no one ever replied to this and i really need some help. i don’t think this is a very far fetched question. i am sure people have broken bolts, rounded off bolts and so on and had to replace them. Where can i buy bolts for various suspension parts? Is my ford dealer my only option and is that even an option? Thanks.

ford dealer is gonna be about it if you want new, and thats if they can even still get them. only other route would be a junkyard.
