Front shock bolt size?????

Guys, I lost the bolt that holds the front shock to the axle and I need to know if I can just replace it with any bolt or if it is something that needs to be bought specially. If I remember correctly it was a 3/4" hex bolt but I can't remember how long or if it was smoot in the middle. Please help!

Yank out the one on the other side and match it up?

I went to stupid Kragen, but the biggest bolt they carry is 1/2". I guess I'll have to pull that other one.

Pull the other one, and go to a regular hardware store. I'd just get a nylock nut with the bolt.

I want to say it's 5/8" x 2-1/2" but take the other one out and see.

A 1/2"x2.5" bolt fit perfectly.
