Front brake caliper anchor bolt size

The bolt I am looking for is, what I call it, the caliper bracket bolt. Not the slide pin bolts, but the other pair. The FSM names them "Anchor bolts". One of the anchor bolts on my drivers side is slightly stripped and I want to replace it the next time I have my calipers off and I was looking for the size or part number, but I cant find anything. I looked all through the FSM and googled it for a good 20 minutes trying to find either a part number, or size of the bolt (along with thread type) and can't find anything. All of the parts diagrams I find seem to omit the bracket and bolts. Does anyone know the size of that bolt so I can order some new ones?

Sure, you mention Akebono, and Continental Teves. I did a part number search on their website to look for the bolt and found nothing. Pardon my assumptions about finding this part on their websites. I am just trying to find the specific dimensions for the caliper mount bolt so I have one on had when I remove the stripped one, just in case it snaps and I have to replace it.
