Stripped Steering Knuckle.....Caliper bolt size for Heli-Coil?

So about a month ago my hubs went bad so I replaced them. Well when I was putting it back together, I noticed that the bottom caliper bolt on the steering knuckle was stripped halfway. I needed more bolt to get through so I ground down the spacer a little bit and it held. Well I had this weird popping noise in my front and I thought it was a U-Joint so I just replaced it and I can't get my steering knuckle to hold the bolt.

My initial thought was just to wait until tomorrow and go get a bolt that is one size bigger and just tap the steering knuckle out. But then I thought about it and the sleeve fits snug in the caliper so a bigger bolt would require a bigger sleeve which would not fit in the caliper. I know there was a kit going around with a helicoils and new bolts. Does anyone know the size of that helicoil? This would make my day! Thanks guys.
