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!
