Changing Leaf Springs + Leaf spring shackles and rear Shocks

As the title says I am replacing my rear leaf springs also rear shackles and shocks.

I have all the new u-bolts as I found some at a local hardware store which fit.

I was wondering if anyone possibly knows what size the bolts are both in the leaf spring shackle front & rear? I want to buy new ones so I can just cut them off with my angle grinder.

I did some research and couldn't find any information regarding what size the bolts are etc. I'm planning to just get the top shackle bolts out (I have brand new shackles & springs) so I can just drop that out, then so I don't have to worry about dicking around with the corroded bolts in the old shackles & springs i could just slide my fresh brand new shackle on my spring, bolt it up and then bolt it right into my jeep instead of swapping the bolts over.

Would be great if someone could help me out!
