NOTICE

Please read this notice and only continue if you are willing to abide by our updated backorder acquisition and fulfillment terms of service.


Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to acquire/restock items reliably. Additionally, a lack of backorder ETA information is a frustrating "new normal" for our hobby. As a result, we have had to change our BACKORDER ACQUISITION TERMS OF SERVICE. If you opt to have us "send backorders later", backordered items will ship automatically within 30 days IF we are able to get them. Longer than 30 day backorders WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED. Made-to-order, Special-Order, and Direct-shipped items may take longer than 30 days, and will NOT be auto-canceled.


On the next page, you will be prompted to select a BACKORDER HANDLING INSTRUCTION for your Order Request. In every case, you are NOT CHARGED for out-of-stock items (we ONLY charge for items that are available to be shipped in a timely or reasonably reliable timeframe). If you opt to "send backorders later" you are automatically added to the waitlist for those items, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/Progress/History Detail View in your online Customer Account. You can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not direct-shipped, special order or made/machined-to-order.

Currently many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Please trust that even if we can't reply to your email promptly, we are continuing to work to fulfill your Order Request as best we can, and we will contact you once we have any new information that is not already posted in your online Order Progress/History area in your customer account.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Some of the items in your cart might be out-of-stock, and if that is the case, within a day or two we will post itemized stock status information to your account and/or email you to let you know. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.

Item Features
IMPORTANT about Stainless Steel. Stainless is a series of alloy steels which contain at least 12% chromium. Such steels will not rust when exposed to the weather. These parts (except lock washers) are made from various 300 series stainless steels which contain at least 18% chromium and 8% nickel. Prior to forming 300 series stainless is non-magnetic, however the forming process can induce SOME magnetism into the part.

Stainless steel is SUPERIOR to chrome plating because it won't crack or peel as it isn't a surface coating, but the very substance from which the fastener is made. However, because stainless steel is fairly soft (it only seems harder because it work-hardens in use) it TENDS TO GALL. ALWAYS use never-seize (anti-seize) or a similar product on the threads to prevent this.

These nuts and bolts are all slightly stronger than Grade 2 fasteners. Unless you have a death wish, do NOT BOLT YOUR BRAKE OR SUSPENSION SYSTEM TOGETHER WITH REGULAR STRENGTH STAINLESS STEEL FASTENERS!. Regular strength stainless is great for most automotive applications, but use common sense! If you absolutely MUST have stainless, we have a line of Grade 8 strength stainless for high strength applications! Ask us!
