I'm not sure, never checked. Good possibility that they may not have then anymore. I had the same issue when I did my rears, the bolt snapped, Sunday evening, nothing open except home centers, need for work the next morning scenario... Good Times... Anyway, I matched it to a grade 8 bolt with a fender washer. The bolt is slightly smaller such that the splines in the bushing (or whatever it's called) don't grab the bolt. I have the bolts installed for about a year with no issues or signs the bolts are fatigued or failing. I use my service brakes frequently.
