Default Lower control arms So much fun

Okay I have a 2004 Pt touring with 145000 miles on it. It was over do for the lower control arms, struts, and the fan. So I made a day out of it. Everything went very well except the driverside vertical control arm bolt. It came out easy enough but in the process I lost the nut. I know they are suppose to be semi captive and I had to have it rewelded into place with the last set of a-arms. The bolt is very chewed up and I need a nut.
Does any one have the part numbers for the bolt and the nut so that I can be prepaired when I go to the dealership tomorrow.

Also I snapped three of the four sway bar bolts so I will have to drill them out. Any types of drill bits or easy outs you all use???

You need the nut inside the frame rail?
Go to link in my signature and DL the correct parts manual.

I'd just use a center punch and go progressively larger bits.

I'd use formagasket #3 if you're having that much trouble with corrosion.
