Default Ball Joint Pinch Bolt

So, my PT has the clunk from the front end. The LCA bushings are good. Sway links and bushings are good. I checked and had a mechanic check and every thing looks and feels tight. So, I had the drivers side ball joint pinch bolt replaced. Long story about why... But the new bolt solved the clunk. But now I need one for the passenger side. The shop doesn't have one. Can anyone tell me where I can get that bolt? It comes with the ball joint but I just need the bolt.

part #24 and #25 in the diagram here

NUT, NUT AND WASHER. Mounting, Shock Absorber Lower Mounting. M12x1.75 made by Mopar. #06501247

BOLT. Hex Flange Head. M12x1.75x57 made by Mopar. #06501248

i would print both and head to the dealer. if prices were more than double, i'd order it online.

you can get a ball joint with the bolt for $4.89 from rock auto. with shipping it's $12 total. may be less for you, depending on your location
