What 'm' size bolt to mount a Fox Float trunnion mount mtb shock?

The shock is a Fox Float 165 x 42.5 Trunnion Mount. I need the size bolts/screws (M8, M10?) for the two top 'trunnion' bolt mounts.

Update:

or, where I can find some real trunnion mount screws, I havent found any, except one at chain reaction for a Vitus bike.

    Is the screw beside of the missing one the same size?  If it is, about any hardware store should have a replacement that'll fit.  Just take that screw to a hardware store or a reputable bicycle shop.  If the other screw isn't the same size you could take the whole shock to a hardware store or a reputable bicycle shop for a replacement screw.  

    You not only have to have the correct screw diameter but must also have the correct tread count.

    to answer my own question, im going to put millimeter lines on tiny pieces of paper in a half circle to determine the correct size. I emailed Fox too, but did not recieve a response.

    That's way beyond the knowledge of anyone here.  Tried a bicycle shop?  Quit looking online only.
