I need new strut to knuckle bolts (camber bolts), where can I buy them and should I get something other than stock?

Rear and fronts are the same part number?

Only the rear of Fiero's have struts, so you need two. To adjust camber in front, you need slotted upper ball joints. Rodney sells those. NAPA lists them as 'fronts' and 'rears' just as generic names. Most FWD cars have struts in the front, and would use the camber bolts in front.

well, they are probably 'front' on other more popular applications since the 84-87 uses a 'front' style setup on rears

I need to post a pic... I found a Fiero in the junkyard, where someone used regular hardware-store-variety bolts on their struts. They were much too small! Probably 1/4-20 or more likely the next size larger. And since they were much too small, they had to use a series of washers on each end - with the nuts REALLY tight - to hold an alignment. I keep thinking, one good bump and those bolts are going to break and the alignment is going to shift. Or worse! I'm sure they weren't the right strength rating either.

EDIT - Here it is. Yeah, bigger than 1/4-20 but not as big as they're supposed to be.
