Stainless steel hardware?
I'm slowly working my way through my new-to-me '92 Jeep, and obviously keep finding rusted bolts. I hate rusted bolts. Are there any issues replacing the old hardware with new stainless hardware? I know stainless bolts tend to be weaker than carbon steel bolts, and am just curious if there's any place I should use them.

be careful with things like the leaf spring bolts, shock bolts, etc... you want to use a grade 8 bolt because of the weight they take on.
