I only mentioned the bolts as I knew that someone would bring up the tensile strength issue, as would I. I would never use stainless bolts in load bearing situations.
The reason I ask is that not many people would use stainless bolts, but they seem happy to use stainless subframe mounts. Nobody has ever answered my concern about using stainless mounts, which take all of the weight and stress of the subframes, from braking to acceleration and suspension bottoming/shock loading.
