Re: Steering box bolts

They are a better grade bolt. A mob that does chevy diesel conversions ,replace all the chev head bolts & main bearing cap bolts with cat bolts . The chev 350 diesels would strip head bolts, they never had any more trouble with the cat bolts.
hope that helps CHEERS aussieG!!
