and they are stronger than a grade eight bolt. also i'd never use a grade 5 bolt for a suspension bolt.
Your right, I believe I read somewhere, that if you use a bolt for any suspension item, it's suppose to be grade 8.

Thanks

Hey Rich,

I can't view pictures from work so I checked things out at home and man that is going to be one fun ride!

I can remember from years ago, one of my favorite vehicles at Maple Grove was this tubbed out 70 SS El Camino with a big block. It was one wild looking car/ truck??? whatever you want to call it.

Good luck with your build.

I've been drooling over it a lot lately. All AMERICAN made and less expensive than the sum of the parts.
