    while I have zero doubt those ARP bolts are significantly stronger than the average bolts youll find that were factory installed I can,t remember any application having failed due to bolt sheer or tension levels being exceeded that did not also involve a great deal of rust and corrosion , and while the price is rather reasonable and if they fit I can,t think of a single reason not to use them along with a good after market poly body mount kit, I doubt the increased strength limits are really much of a benefit, simply because even the standard OEM single bolts strength limitations far exceed the cars weight, theres about 8 bolts holding the frame to the body, and the bolts screw into far weaker grade #5 plates and nuts on the frame , thus a single bolts strength seems rather irrelevant in that application, as it won,t be the bolt that fails but what it screws into!
