I think you are talking about the bolts that hold the tower at the tilt over
points.  Mine were originally black steel but the bolts and base stay put
when you move the tower.  I have moved the tower three times and have used
1" galvanized universal bolt available at large hardware stores (they may
have to order for you) or McMaster-Carr.  They are 36" long plus a 6 " right
angle bend (mine were L's not J's).  A foundry or perhaps a Northern Supply
outlet can put bends in the bolts for you.
