My Dad was a Ford kinda guy.
I'm more of an AMC and Willys feller.
You mentioned Ford changed the design.
Have you looked at aftermarket parts (Such as the local parts store)?
Many times you can see your local store, online.
Look up both vehicles.
Compare 'their' part numbers between a 2006 and a 2010, are they different?
I woulda done this for you, but you gave us none of your vehicle info (now you know how!)
Next, sometimes you can scroll down and see the exact specs of the part you are viewing, sometimes "that store" may not list the hole/ thread size, go online to another local store, maybe they will list it. If nothing else just go there and have 'em put it on the counter for a better inspection.
Some people 'have to have' Genuine parts.
I can't see the bigger bucks spent at the stealership.
Not me, most of the time I can get a lifetime warranty (keep the receipt forever, like I do, you'll never have to buy it again!)
Reman parts are cheaper a lot of the time, I very rarely have a problem with 'em (I always have the receipt!)
A good part that fits beats modifying the goodies in your vehicle.
