Default Control Arm bolt size

I can't quite find my stock LCA bolts, but need to replace them asap. Anyone know what size they (length for the most part) are so I can go to lowes and grab a few and some ny-lock nuts? Thanks.

Just an FYI in case anyone searches and finds this thread... make sure you get the M12, I initially got the closest SAE equivalent (ended up as ~12.5mm), and while it slid through the LCA bushing, GM in its infinite wisdom decided to make the hole on the actual chassis of the car, slightly SMALLER. So it wouldn't fit. My M12x90 bolt for what it's worth fit just fine, and there was more than enough thread on the other side of the bolt to thread the nut. My fault no doubt, but just trying to save someone else from making the same mistake in judgement Thanks again.
