Hi-tensile and nyloc nuts. You want the strongest possible bolts for them. Stainless are weaker bolts although they won't corrode. It will take a long time for hi-tensile bolts to corrode though.

So dont worry to much about potential corrosion.

No problem with that then. They won't react at all. If you drill any holes give them a lick of paint and let the paint dry before bolting up on the body or chassis. Stops rusting on the holes further on down the track.
