Front Caliper Bolt Size?

I've got a sticky caliper (front/drivers).
I'm going to remove it tonight, and lube up the slide pins (hopefully not have to replace caliper).
Can somebody tell me what size bolt holds the front caliper on?

I want to make sure I have the right socket before leaving the shop today.

Thanks

18mm. Turns out bottom slide pin was siezed. I wish I had time to orderthe guzzle pin slide kit, but I need the truck today.
had to pick up a new caliper bracket and pins.

Not a bad job, but getting the caliper off the rotor without opening the bleeder screw took a lot of time and manuveriing.

Eventually I tried to open the bleeder screw, but it was on so tight I was afraid it would snap off. So I just muscled the caliper off.
