steering stabilizer hardware question

Hello Jeep owners/mechanics. I recently noticed my steering stabilizer
came off at one end. it appears the top nut came off and the end
of the stabilizer slipped off of the stud/hardware. I need to know what
size nut this is?..(of course the flat washer and lock washer are gone too)
I really don't want to go purchase an assortment and hope one works
or run back and fourth from the hardware store and the parking lot till I
get the right one. anyone know?..thanks in advance.

the shock itself seems fine and fit back on the stud with no trouble..I might replace it soon as looks like there is some
fluid leaking from it but not bad..any advice?

If your steering stabilizer is leaking fluid it's bad. Try pulling/pushing it in and bet you'll find very little resistance which you need for it to work correctly.

I'd go with a Moog stabilizer like below but a little pricey at Advance online for $60.99 plus tax even after P20 discount code is used (total $48.92 plus tax). Amazon sells the same thing for $40.26 w/free shipping.
