Default Battery replacement on 2002 vette - what size bolt?

I am trying to remove a dead battery in my 2002 corvette. I have removed the cables with no problem. However, I need to purchase a ratchet set with extension in order to remove the bolt that is holding the battery down.

Does anyone know what size bolt is used to hold the battery down? Also, any suggestions regarding type, price and retailer for ratchet set? I don't need anything fancy since I will probably ony use the set for this purpose.

I am thinking of just getting a Duralast battery. Any comments from people who have used Duralast?

Thank you so Much.

just did it myself on my 01 A4. It is a 8mm for the battery posts and a 10mm for the hold down bolt on mine. What kind of battery did you get?
