What are Grade5?, what does that mean?.
grading is a measurement of the metals strength/hardness, and yes that WILL make all the difference in the world! I've replaced everything 'cept the head bolts, which you shouldnt have a problem with as long as you get 'em tight but not overtightened! If I remember correct you should tighten to about 8 torque pounds( get em nice n snug-THEN STOP!)
P.S. all you need to replace to solve yer problem is the mounting bolts, but I think allen head machine screws look a lot nicer!
