No. These are critical suspension bolts you want to use grade 8 bolts.

Re: 69 upper ball joint bolts

Use the same rating as the bolts Moog sent. I have used grade 5 bolts on my rear suspension because the guy that sold me my springs sold them to me. He reasoning is a grade 5 will bend and a grade 8 might break. Under most normal driving there is not much load on those bolts but I think I would want what Moog sent for the abnormal driving conditions. JMHO
