Look at the shape of the hole in the back. If it has a shallow counterbore for the head of a recessed nut, then the back hole should be 8mm in diameter, and probably just needs to be cleaned out. In that case, either a longer screw or nut will work.
If the back hole isn't counterbored, and is closer to 6mm which makes sense for a fork with canti bosses, then buy a longer bolt.
