 I'm not sure what you mean by 'caliper bolts' since as far as I know there are no bolts used to mount the caliper like on early GM.
 There are bolts that are used to mount the anchor plate & the '74 up has a sort of bolt used to retain the caliper support key.
 I'm unable to reply to your post because it is a 'read only.'

Here are pictures of what I think she is looking for. The larger bolt (1/2 inch) is 2.5 inches long with #12 coarse threads. The smaller bolt (7/16) is 1.75 inches long and has #14 coarse threads. Something close to these should be available at a hardware store that carries "hardened" bolts. Both have lock washers. Don't just get the galvinized junk from Home Depot.
