I can dig through my bolt bins and see if I can find a couple. I am guessing 12mm 1.75 thread pitch...you say 9" or longer?

Yeah there are a bunch of good bolt places several in Livonia Midwest? was one that I used to go to all they carried was nuts and bolts. They usually frown on orders less than $20 so if you do call one of those speciality places you may want to order some additional stuff to make them happy.

some places dont want to take the time to sell folks a bolt at 80 cents,so yes most have a minimum. i just think of the most common size hardware i need and restock that bin when there.
