    I think western called for grade 5 I went with grade 8 I didn't see a reason to go with any thing less the $ I spent might save me broke parts later .

    I have this theory about using hardware stronger then whats called for.
    My theory is that if you should hit the plow into something that the bolts will shear before any real damage is done.

    Got Ya

    Definetly Go With Grade 5, Grade 8's Are Too Hard And Can Snap With A Nice Jolt From Plowing, Go For Grade 5's, Never Had A Problem, 4 Trucks With Them For 5 Years Of Plowing Never A Problem
