    Despite the fact that most gr8 is yellow zinc and 5 is silver, there isn't a direct correlation between coating and grade. All our current hardware is at least grade 8 and is all silver zinc finished. No problems with the ubolts there.

    These things are great man! ORD helped me out a couple years ago, expressing them to my parents business when my square bolts decided to degrade and break 1 day before I had to be on the road to WA. Side note: Hey ORD everyone up here in WA is in love your sway bar disco and shackle flip. Yeah I know there are a lot of users on here but the general public is clueless. You should have Petersens rerun that article about them!

    Thanks, you're right, more magazine press would be good.
