Default BC Coilover install on AWD question

For the rears, there are two bolts that mount the OEM shock/strut to the chassis. The BC Coilovers don't have the tabs on them to mount them to the chassis. So basically it seems as though the BC coilover just mounts at the top (3 screws) and the one big bolt on the bottom. Is this how it should be?

Also, anyone have the p/n for the big bolt that connects the bottom of the shock? Mine wouldn't come out easily and I would like to buy another one.

Don't worry about those two bolts even the RWD BC model does not have them.

Cool, that's good news. Soaking the other bolt over night, hopefully the other side will come out easier.
