Default Will stainless steel work for differential balls?

I'm looking for alternative sources of diff balls(11 bucks for 12 carbide balls!!?!?!?! ) and came upon grade 24 stainless steel 3/32" balls for $3.75/50 balls on mcmaster-carr. 230 brinell(sp?) hardness. Will these hold up in a touring car diff? I'm not as worried as much about performance as durability.

99% of the diff balls on the market are stainless .. we run stainless in pan cars and u cans till buy them.. the drawback is in the long run they do not last as long.. but u can get twice as much for less price... carbide diff balls last longer but they damage the diff rings more since they are harder... but the answer is yes they work
