Can't see the pictures but if it's the 55mm torx bolts that join the drive shafts to the diff (and the stub axle) and the washers that span a pair of holes they are on eBay. I just bought a set of the washers myself.

I bought these washers : https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cosworth-Sierra-Drive-Shaft-bolt-Spreader-Plate-set-all-4-Joints-100mm-7/321395537157?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_tr ksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

They do bolt sets too https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sierra-Cosworth-Rear-Drive-Shaft-bolt-set-M8-New/220680432777?hash=item3361942c89:g:AB8AAMXQt5ZRZBof

But for the bolts I just bought 55mm (from memory) M8 bolts in 10.9 from my local fastener supplier. The type of head is not important - I bought cap head bolts which tighten with a hex bit.

From what discussion I have seen online people seem to use either the 2-hole washer, or a split washer - not both. Where is your diagram from?

If its the 100mm O/D CV's then Grade 12.9 M8x50mm Cap head's (allen key ones) are fine and you can get them anywhere - torx heads are just a PITA (I guess they suit the factory, but to everyone else they are just a hassle)


item 30 looks like a spring washer, none of the cars I've stripped down ever had these - just item 10 instead (which are really important)
Spring washers are next to useless for bolt locking, so best to use the 2 hole type instead


also keep in mind that these CV joints (inc. the boots, bolts and lock washers) are not unique to sierra's or even ford - they are all made by GKN and known as Lobro's and come in just a few different sizes - so getting parts for them should be pretty easy in almost any country (common on VW / Audi / Seat / Skoda as well as others )
