Exhaust manifold flange bolts or studs?

Just wondering whats there studs or bolts sorry I never checked, real question is if there bolts i should probably replace them right? are they special bolts or will grade 8 bolts work?

I went to autozone and bought exhaust bolts. Two of the old ones broke anyways. They come in a kit of 4.

There are two studs (far left and far right of the manifold), the rest are bolts.

Where the flange on the downpipe meets the outlet on the manifold they are showing 2 studs (J4007109) on the 94-96 ZJ parts list but they don't give thread size.

Sorry yea where the downpipe meets the manifold. If they are studs are they replaceable?

Would imagine you can since they sell the replacement studs. You'd probably have to put a whole lot of heat to the area around them to turn it red hot since they're designed like wheel studs as can be seen below.

Another option is once you pound them out use the bolt/nut exhaust kit since you may have a more difficult time getting new studs installed.

I just undid the flange on my 95 4.0. The studs were not going anywhere... bolts came right off with impact gun. I lost one nut while putting them back on and could not find correct replacement nut size outside of dealer..lucky for me I finally found the nut later that day.

@xcaliber81 Make sure to soak them in PB Blaster or Kroil or comparable (NOT while hot) at least the night before removing.
