Hi @eyedrop ,

If you want the part my go to source is McMaster...
You will have them tomorrow...

Tesla may not trust us to properly service the steering rack...
There are also recalls about the bolts...
I do not know the material specified in the Tesla part number shown
but a good grade of stainless steel usually works.
Original bolts were aluminum that dissolved in Midwest and Canadian
winters when exposed to magnesium based road salts.

Good luck,
