Rotted out shackle hanger

My ranger has the typical rotted off hanger on one side. I got a replacement hanger/shackle assembly from a salvage yard ranger. Im going to grind and drill out the old rivets and beat off the old hanger and sawzall the old bolt on the leaf spring. Before i head to the auto parts store to order the new bushings, are there particular nuts and bolts that go in replacement of the rivets that i can get at the store or can i just go to Home Depot and get some? And what size and grade? Same with the leaf spring bolt. I'd imagine they already have the leaf spring bolt at the auto parts store.
