Default Driveshaft bolt help

Im taking apart my 2007 2.5i 5mt and in part of getting to my clutch, i had stripped one of the nuts on the driveshaft bolt, i had to get the thing out and i was not going to put a grinder or sawzall right next to my drive shaft or deferential, so i decided to drill the nut out. However after traveling around to local part stores, i am unable to find these bolts, it is not the normal hex sided bolt, instead it is flush and flat on one side to fit up against the driveshaft.

the only help i could find was this: http://www.iwsti.com/forums/drivetra...placement.html
and this is for a difrent bolt on an older sti drivetrain

can anyone lead me in the right direction? i am going to take a trip to the stealership tomorrow with high hopes

I posted pictures but it doesn't look like they are showing, I assume I don't meet a post count to post links or something

I see the pictures. You might have better luck in the drivetrain forum.

Maybe you could grind down a regular bolt head to match.

You can try grinding down a bolt, but the dealer will have the correct part.

You can use a standard bolt no problem. Make sure to use a set of 4 matching bolts, though, as to not cause balance issues.

Thank you I wasn't sure if this would cause any issues, I had not gotten to swing by the dealership yet as I forgot the closest one is over an hour away from me.

I guess I stand corrected. You've had plenty of luck in this forum.
