Default 1989 F350 Front Shock Bolts

I decided to buy new shocks for my truck. Since this truck spent most of it's time around the salt water, the current bolts/nuts are no longer usable.
I only got as far as removing the fronts before I had to head back to work. There were two different shocks on the front and all four shock bolts were different.

Is there a place I can buy the correct bolts/nuts or is it just as good to go get them from the hardware store?

I am still at work for another week, can someone tell me what diameter and length they are?

This is for my 1989 F350 4x4.

Thank you.

Thanks man! I might get in touch when I get home, depends on what the laundry list looks like when I get there. I have a few more days at work.

Thanks for the offer, but I did not have time this R&R to head out on a long parts run.

I ended up picking up some 12mm hardware from the local hardware store. I tried 1/2" bolts, but they would not slip through the shock eye's and I did not like the sloppiness of the 7/16" bolts.

The fronts are in and I will get to the rears the next time I am home.

No problem, I know how it is with time management on R&R.
