Where to Buy Strut Mount Bolts?

I noticed that my driver's side strut mount bolts are pretty badly rusted, so I was thinking about just replacing them before I put on my strut tower bar. Does anyone know what size they are or where to buy them? I figure Lowe's would have them, but I also don't know what size they are.

Edit:
Nuts, not bolts.

Do you mean the 3 nuts at the top or the 2 bolts that hold the strut to the knuckle?

If you hate rust as much as I do and you are talking about the 6 nuts on top of the struts then I suggest Stainless steel M8 flange head nuts. In a hundred years they'll look the same as the day you put them on.

10pc Metric M8*1.25 Stainless Steel Hex Serrated Flange Stop Lock Nut FASTENER

like the ones I used on by snowblower front support dolly wheels.

Yup, the 3 nuts (per strut, so yeah, 6 total) at the top holding the strut to the chassis.

Are the ones from the link you posted are the right size for that?
