I'd get the 1-1/4" length.

I also used a regular hex head style stainless steel bolt. Socket head stainless steel was what came out. Much easier to install and tighten. Of course with some anti-seize.
Yeah, I looked at mine and it looks like the 1.5" is not going to work. I may look into that hex bolt to see if there are any 1.25" bolts. Thanks.
