    so i gotta replace my D60 steering stop bolts what should i use grade 5 or grade 8 bolts. i will be using hydro assit. if i use grade 8 i'm concerned that they will sheer off in the knuckle instead of bending like a grade 5 would. but then would a grade 5 be to soft and just bend the first time i got really hard on the stops?

    id say grade 8, but like a bumper bolt style bolt with a round head, because you would run a nut on the shaft to set the depth of the bolt anyways and you can use an open end wrench to turn the square part of the bolt..
