    These “Jesus” bolts are often seized beyond conventional means of removal due to salty areas of the country.
    These are the outboard bolts that attach the lateral arms to the rear knuckles.
    Mazda part number B455-28-113

    I will pray for your success.

    Remember, those bolts love you (although sometimes they sorely test your faith).

    They are listed as $16.65 each at jimellismazdaparts(dot)com. Maybe I should order in a couple of sets.

    Try your local Mazda dealer first, might be cheaper than paying shipping.

    Should this part number be added to the part number thread?

    And slather those puppies with grease/oil/neversieze!

    Yes for adding it to the part number thread!

    The jimellismazda parts site also lists the long bolts holding the inner end of the lateral arms into the subframe. I might get a set of those as well. Mazda p.n. B528-28-112

    And for sure I need to visit the nearest Mazda dealer, as there a few other parts in common with the Escorts, (but no longer available from a Ford dealer) such as the cable that runs from the F4EAT down to the transmission, to control line pressure.

    I agree, I should’ve checked local. Shipping was pricey!
    Was going to order 4 bolts but $98 after tax and shipping was a bit much so I went to just 2 for now.

    I ended up resorting to a cutoff wheel, not even a 1,400 ft lb Milwaukee impact could turn the bolts. Lol
