Where can I find replacement studs for the shock plates on a 70 Challenger I am restoring? Did Dodge use the same part on various year and models?

All of the "B" and "E" body cars use the same lower plates that the leaf spring u-bolts go through. Besides replacing the plates, you can also drill out the bolts and use replacement lower shock bolts from a '70s or '80s GM rear wheel drive rear shock absorber.

Thanks, I really appreciate the help. I have a broken bolt on the right side and could not find anything on replacement studs. This will save me a lot of headaches. I cannot begin to thank you enough.
