Never thought of that. I will check that.

personally, i hate stainless steel screws. they bend easier, the heads strip out easier, and when threaded into aluminum they should be used with anti-sieze.

i actually prefer the black screws, or even gold zinc coated if available, but the stainless do have a smaller head, so i use them when i need that.

I personally have not had anymore issues with them as compared to the kit ones but like that the heads are smaller and fit in the counter sunk holes way better then the kit screws. I have not had an issue using them with aluminum parts either.

Ya I wouldn't recommend using stainless in anything.. Unless you don't want it to rust. Regular steel is a stronger material. (I understand your using them because they fit better )

To each their own, I have been using them the last couple of years with no issues. That includes even my offroad stuff as well.

Default Hey PookyT...

Did you go to the Bass Pro Shop race in Jackson this past weekend?


If so...would you happen to have any race results?

I know Credeur and Chassaniol were driving the "R" for the first time there...Great new design..I like it much better than the old car...

Jeff
