Is it a Chevy? Then any Chevy dealer (parts department).
I had to get a couple weird bolts form Kia for the job I just did.

Rear bolt on the drive shaft for 05 suburban cracked, Do they sell just the bolt or I need a whole new drive shaft?

If that is the correct part you can bring the part number to any GM dealer.

Yes, I sometimes do that for small items because shipping from rockauto is slow and costly. But their part finding service is so valuable to me that I make sure to buy directly from them anytime its reasonable (which is most of the time for ordinary parts)- it's only right support the business and not just be a freeloader.

What happens if a Bolt catches on fire while parked and GM doesn't pay for repairs, let alone damages, and makes the customer pay for the rest of the car? Do you sue the CEO directly? ;)

Just ask.  :)
I can't say I don't know what any of those are.
 Just watching ChrisFix alone I've seen him use many of the tools from AutoZone or advanced Auto.

 But cool to know there's a tool for every job.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
