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?

As best as I can remember they are identical and metric on mine .

My 95 has 3 and all the same. So the newer ones just have 2?

Nothing stock left on her and not a nut, bolt, hose, or wire on there that I didn't put where it is.

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.
