Drive shaft bolts size

I was told that the rear drive shaft bolts at the drum brake are 3/8 (24 thread) x 1.5 inch.
I just wanted to double check my memory, as I didn't write it down.
I searched and didn't find anything.

According to Microcat 1 3/4".
I was looking at one today and that sounds about right.

Thanks,
Half the sites I found say 1.5, the other half say 1.75.
I guess I'll get both, grade 8 will cut it I hope?

I'm pretty sure stock is grade 5, but certainly grade 8 is fine. Just be sure to not mix bolt and nut grades.
The only reason I switched mine to grade 8 is that I can get very corrosion resistant bolts in fine thread, locally.

Well, I measured one this morning and they are 1 1/2" and they are the originals, so I guess either will work.
