If you mean caliper to steering knuckle.
Off top of my head. 10mm diameter with a fine thread. So that would be something like 1.25 or 1.5 for a 10mm diameter bolt. Can't say how long.

It is returnable and you could get a 20, 25 mm

And if I am wrong, sorry. Just using memory.

I seem to remember using a 17mm socket on that.
Don't you have one you can remove from another caliper to use as a sample ?

Take the other one with you for comparison if you are still looking for the information.

X2 and buy some thread locker if necessary whilst you are there as well.

Pretty sure those are also grade 10.9 bolts, don't use 8.8!
