I remembered that after I posted. Thanks Bill.

The AutoZones here still carry the Energy Suspension brand.

IIRC though, a 3/8" grade 8 bolt from Ace Hardware will work just fine and looks exactly the same.

I've got one more question. I've read that it'* easier to install these on ramps since the suspension isn't hanging in the air but I don't have them - just jackstands. It'* not possible to just turn the wheels all the way to the right when doing the driver'* side and all the way to the left for the passenger side is it? Thanks.

well i did the fronts on a hoist, so i cant really tell ya on that... BUT i did retorque them down about 15 miles from the shop, at a gas station, without lifting the car at all.. just turning the wheels gave enough space... but that was just retorquing them, not changing, its a little harder

for the rears, i did it in the garage on the floor, just by using 2 car jacks...

I finally found the parts on their website. Their search function is pretty messed up I think. It decides to randomly work/not work. I finally came up with the parts 9.8120R and 9.8105R after several tries. I placed my order for the parts though! I went back to search for those parts again and got nothing. Searched for 9.8120, 9.8120R, 9.8210RC - NOTHING. GRRR it makes me frustrated for other people even. I lucked out somehow and should have a better riding suspension when I can get some time to install.
Here'* the link to the front kit. Guard it with your life.
