Title: RE: Grade 8 bolts in place of A325 bolts

Referring to AISC's "A Guide to Engineering and Quality Criteria for Steel Structures," SAE J429 Grade 8 bolts have the same strength properties as ASTM A490 bolts.   However, unlike A490 & A325, SAE J429 does not specify thread length or head size.  A325 and A490 also have more stringent inspection and quality assurance requirements.
