Default Hanger/Shackle Bolt size?

Getting ready to hack the shit out of the Bolt/nut combo at the top of the shackle where it connects to the hanger and pivots. Does anyone know the size of this bolt? ill be able to save the nut with the welded wing on it, but i dont wanna hack the bolt up and not be able to replace it. Thanks.

Look for one at the hardware store. Just match the grade. I'd look for a part no. for ya but no info.
Why will you "hack the shit" out of your shackle and possibly ruin the bolt anywichwise?

If there's a 10.9 on the bolt head, it's metric. If not, its SAE.
