Rear Upper Control Arm BOLT replacement

so as part of the "upgrade" to the 8.8 rear, i want to replace the PITA star drive carriage bolts used from the factory.

My question is this, as I've been looking, it shows a "shoulder" bolt. And the dealer is spec'd out a new part change as a "hex bolt" which i'm thinking is changed to what I'd like. But why is it a shoulder bolt, and what do i need to go get at the hardware store rather than pay for the dealer price of 2 bolts?

Whatever you do make sure they are SAE Grade 8 or Metric Grade 10.9.

Anything less is stupid.

So it's to keep the threads from actually being smashed down creating play within the bushing? I was thinking that as well....but then the lowers are not shoulder bolts so wasn't sure.
