lost starter bolt on 02

for some reason, my factory starter on my 02 decided to start wiggling loose, well i got in it the other morning to start and the thing sounded like the starter was going out. (first thoughts where great 200 bucks.) after some investigation, i crawled up uderneath and found the starter loose. the top bolt had fallen out and the bottom one was loose. i tightened the bottom one up but was curious if someone could give me an idea if the top bolt is the same length as the bottom bolt?

well, went to advanced auto parts and bought a couple bolts....
part number 980-530
M10-1,50 x 30mm

used a 15 mm socket.
tad bit shorter than the factory bolt but still worked.
