To the OP, as has been suggested multiple times already, I'd obviously start with an OEM bolt and washer and go from there.
i Dunno i torque it to 22ft lbs per grambles recomendations.

OHHH you know what i think the dealer did my last oil change... and those mo fos are ass holes and probably did 2 DDIIIGUGGGAs on it which means they probably over torqued it because it was a bitch to get off.
