    316SS will seize if you look at it wrong. 400 series is more forgiving. I doubt common SS nuts/bolts are 300 series. Still, I will continue to use anti-seize on stainless fasteners.

    I've seized SS hardware just by running a nut on by hand. They were new though which makes it more likely.

    You must not live near salt water, idk about salt roads I’m in Louisiana
    But, if it’s stainless and touches aluminum
    it will sieze

    Loving stainless steel nuts and bolts

    I am an old guy and keep my stuff forever.I have a very large selection of stainless nuts and bolts. For the last 20 years or so ,I have been routinely replacing plain steel hardware with stainless ,when I am repairing things.I know that there is an old wives tale about stainless nuts and bolts seizing up. Dont believe it.Now I am not talking about high strength suspension parts.I work on a lot of outdoor stuf ,like mowers ,four wheelers ect, If you cant afford stainless bolts ,try using stainless nuts with plain steel bolts. You can buy ss nuts online almost as cheap as plain steel The next time you take it apart ,you will be smiling..Edwin Dirnbeck
