I would also like to know what size they are. I think they are 3/8"x16x5/8" , but I would like someone to confirm this.

First, I wouldn't drive the car with only 2 bolts installed. For the exact bolt size try contacting user Kevin Winstead. He works for TCI and is very helpful. Or you can remove one of the bolts, take it to a hardware store to match the thread and length.
