IRS Diff Cover bolts

Hey Guys,

I got my hands on a nice IRS cover. Gonna put it on soon. I didn't get the bolts, I hear they are different. Anyone know what size they are. As far as I can tell they probably 1/4-3/8 inch longer than the stock ones with the stamped cover.

Thanks,

just measure how thick it is and get a longer bolt with the same thread as yours. I forget what size I used.
