A-frame swivel securing bolts

Anyone know what size the 2 bolts next to the aframe swivel are? The 2 bolts that hold it place after you press it in.

Also wondering if I could use 3 stainless bolts (I have a butt load leftover) at the front of the trailing arms? Or will they not be strong enough?

I have (against my better judgment) used stainless to hold the trailing arm bushings in for over 5 years now, but don't do it please, I used grade 8.8 steel on the 110.

If you're concerned about rust on the fasteners, just slather them with http://www.neverseezproducts.com/antiseize.htm

I've been using it for over 35 years, it's great stuff. Mostly I use the regular grade, but I have a can of the Nickel I use on spark plugs, diesel injectors and the like.
