Default 06 Ion strut bearing cap bolt size

I found that these bolts are GM part number 15225136, but still don't know the size


Another week, another bolt size question. Again the dealer and parts stores are stumped.

I ordered Monroe quickstruts (complete assemblies) to replace my clunking-when-turning struts (mainly the bearings under the cap are bad on mine.) Problem is they are not "complete" - these quickstruts, Monroe PN 172203, did not come with bolts to hold the bearing cap down (the 4 small screws.)

On my old ones, I actually have the proper torx socket, and soaked them with liquid wrench overnight, but still broke EVERY ONE OF THEM getting them off. I used every trick I know to back them out without snapping and nothing worked. I really needed one to answer my question -

What is the size of the bolts that hold that top plate on? I need to pick some up tomorrow to finish this otherwise very very easy job.

Thanks

I found the bolts - I bought m6-1.0 x 25 mm bolts, but they are a little long. Get shorter ones or trim them down and they are perfect!
