What size rear wheel studs do I need for disc brakes

After putting rear discs on my 68, I realize that I need longer wheel studs. What size do I need to get? All the ones I see online do not give a size...

not much longer than stock
if you are able to without alot of hassle is just measure the thickness of the old drum mounting surface thickness and measure the disk mounting surface thickness
it usually just comes out to be a 1/2" longer stud

Take a look at a 1969 Corvette rear stud. Should be same diameter and longer due to the Corvette having disc brakes.
