    They don't have to be carriage bolts. You can use a bolt with a head on them from any hardware store but do not use stainless! It is to brittle, use the grade eight and get the ones coated with zinc or something they won't rust.

      yah, I couldn't find any 7/16 carriage bolts and didn't want bolt heads protruding. I used 1/2 inch carriage bolts, took a tap of the hammer to seat then into the floor. I was using energy suspention body mounts, I had to open the washers up to 1/2, the spacers were big enough
