2003 Ford escape XLT 4wd lower control arm replacement

I have a 2003 Ford escape XLT 4wd, 3.0l V6. I'm replacing the front driver side lower control arm. However the front (horizontal) mounting bolt to the subframe, and the rear (vertical) mounting bolt to the subframe are broken. Ford cannot give me part numbers for either of these bolts. The nearest that I have come up with is that the rear mounting bolt is a M14x2.0x115 grade 10.9 flange bolt, possibly with a capture nut or welded nut on top. The front mounting bolt is a M12x1.75x100 grade 10.9 flange bolt. Does anyone have part numbers or reference to an exploded diagram where I could find the part numbers? Any help would be appreciated.

Here's a image from the 2001-2006 Ford Escape repair manual showing the part numbers (and torque values) for the control arm bolts.
