I would agree with the grade 8, but I avoid stainless fasteners on applications where they are removed and reinstalled repeatedly. The stainless does not do well in those types of situations, the threads deteriorate and the bolt may get stuck in place after repeated removals. I always put a little grease or never-seize on spindle bolts before reinstalling.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.
