Question on front Shock bolts

A while ago both of my bolts for the front left shock sheared off, Bought wrong size shock when for test drive the rest is history,So i drilled both of them out. That was fun, NOT!, well in the next week or so i plan on replacing the lower control arm, well both upper and lower on each side to keep it even. Now i have discarded the old bolts and im not sure if the new Dorman control arms come with new bolts or not, was wondering if and one may know thread pitch and size. I have a 2001 Ranger with front coil suspension, NOT TORSION BARS, just to clarify. Thanks, if no one knows its ok i will just take one bolt off on other side and go to hard ware store or just bring new part cause i guess it good be different, just though i would ask thanks.

Your best bet is to take one off of the other side and take it as a reference to match at a hardware store or the "HELP!" section of advance auto or autozone.

I looked in the Ford workshop manual and didnt find the specs or part number for the bolts, just the nuts.
