Missing subframe bolt (right rear)

2302 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Darthz
Recently took my car to get control arms replaced and mechanic noticed that I am missing a subframe bolt near the right rear. Mechanic then mentioned how it may be difficult to find this type of bolt since it is very industrial and a very long bolt so places such as Autozone or Advanced Auto Parts likely do not have them.

I am new to this forum, but if anyone knows where I could possibly find this type of bolt or have had similar issues in the past, let me know. I am thinking about going to the dealership and seeing if they may have any spare bolts lying around, but this may likely be the most expensive option. Any advice is highly appreciative.

I've got a 2007 Chevy Malibu LS 2.2L FI DOHC 4Cyl vehicle.

I thought about getting the dimensions of the bolt if I took it to a dealer or a mechanic just so I may 3D print it through a friend, but the material of it might not work well. Might end up going to the scrap yard.. not sure how the process will go, but hoping for the best. Thanks again everyone!
