Shear lug(s) is your best bet, anchor bolts are not that good in taking the shear, especially, when you have so few of those.  I would not recommend to combine the action of both.

I have this scenario; a support reaction F x = 172 Kips,   F y = 100 kips   F z = 21 kips


Due to space restrictions I can only fit 4 ? 1 ½? diameter anchor bolts.


What I?m planning to meet this requirement is to use a F1554 GR 105, and a shear lug. Can anyone suggest if this kind of Grade of fastener

Is good for resisting a high shear load?
