Default LIM bolts?

Getting all the stuff around to replace the LIM gaskets on my '04 Monte Carlo SS but can't seem to find the LIM bolts online anywhere. Does anyone have a part # or link to the bolts I need?

From what I've read, it's recommended to replace them since they can stretch over time.
My car has about 215,000 miles on it and I don't think the manifold's ever been removed.

In theory, yes, all these bolts stretch. But these aren't race cars. I've done head gaskets and re-used every bolt. I would be more concerned about the head bolts then the LIM.

If you really want to replace them, I had a company match them up for the 3800 non-supercharged engine to stainless steel:

Ah, ok; thank you. =)
As long as it won't be a problem, I'll just go ahead and re-use the existing bolts, then.
