Most of the standard strength fasteners are
made of "18-8" (300 series stainless steel having approximately 18%
chromium and 8% nickel). The metric designation is A2. The strength of
these fasteners is between Grade 2 and 3.
Stainless steel is a fairly soft metal and
for this reason it tends to gall. Always use Anti-Seize or a similar
product when working with stainless steel fasteners! If you have never had
a stainless fastener gall on you before, it's not fun. When a fastener
galls, it seizes.
Unless you have suicidal tendencies,
use standard strength stainless fasteners on critical race
car applications such as rear ends, steering joints or motor mounts as
well as on OEM/aftermarket braking or suspension systems.
We offer a full line of ARP 170,000 psi high
strength "grade 8" stainless fasteners in 12pt and 6pt heads that work
very well on these applications up through 7/16" diameter. Always refer to
the application guidelines of the original manufacturer.
