Welcome, I am Chris (aka-Moose)

Ford does not specify bolt sizes for any year or model. I am pretty sure the bolt threads are the same as the ones that hold the transmission to the engine, so check that. If its correct then you just need a fully threaded bolt. The threaded shank portion is about 1.5 inches long. The bolts are metric course thread. I can try to find you the Ford part number if needed and I can tell you how to measure bolt threads and pitch if you have a digital caliper that has a metric scale.

Can you set the parking brake, scotch the wheels and lay under the truck while another changes the gears so you can look for things moving excessive like the U-joints, axle, transmission, transfer case, engine, and exhaust. Based on the noise, feeling and lift the rear driveshaft is where I would look first.
