Will, don't use stainless steel. They have a tendency to bind/gall and
will be very difficult to replace if you need to.
Buckmaster says you're in North Carolina. If you're near the coastline,
the salt air might be the culprit. I'd stick with galvanized steel
bolts/nuts/lockwashers and replace them periodically/as necessary. Of
course, use the strength bolt recommended by ROHN.
