That hardware strore locknut may not be the higher grade of steel needed for the application. I'd suggest buying the genuine part if you don't have a local supplier that can sell you grade 8 metric hardware. It may even be a grade 10 piece of hardware. The bolt and nut should be torqued to spec with the weight of the car on the suspension. Probably something like 65-70ftlbs.
