Another Xj leaf bolt question

Seen a few people having difficulty with the rear front leaf bolt. The weldnut breaks off, or they snap the bolt, they cant get it off because of the sleeve.

Long story short is I cut mine out, got them out without breaking the weldnut. But i may have dammaged the threads at the end of the nut, take a look at the pictures.

So anyways I need to know the size of the bolt I will need to replace. The internet told me M14 x 2.0 pitch x 120mm, but that is a very specific bolt, I cant find it locally.

Anyplaces online that will sell them? they are 15$ a piece from the dealer..
