so u guys suggested the best way is to go to honda and grab the bolts. becasue most of the civic the strut tower bolts are rusted bad so i just want to know if you guys get it from dealer or just CT.

just take an old one to ct and ask the people working at the counter to match one up for you from the shop in back parts.

hell no, don't go to canadian tire. get them from the dealer. even at $5 per bolt it's still a bargain.

are you talking about the NUTS that go on top of the strut towers in the engine bay and in the trunk?

they are special nuts with locking teeth on em...normal nuts will not be a good idea and ctc doesnt have grade 8 hardware anyways which is what u need atleast...brafasco would have em but they are cheap and readily available from dealer, I think I paid 9bucks for 4 of em

CT has grade 8 hardware, in the special bolt section they have some high strength units.

I have also seen the locking teech ones, I bought a couple from CT before. Its got crossed lines on the bottom to grab the metal.

true, they do have some grade 8 but I believe they are all coarse thread...nonetheless, dealer is prolly the best and safest solution
