Broken High Steer arm bolts?

Running front and rear steer Rocks with high steer arms but break the bolts after every time I wheel it for a weekend. I have tried grade 5 and 8 and now 10's. Still have the problem. Getting tired of drilling bolts out. I will try just about anything at this point. I even thought about buying a different high steer arm. Tried to find studs to fit but no luck yet. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Jeff

Who's high steer arm are you using? We are using one from OTC with a 2 1/2 x 8" ram bolted down by grade 9 bolts on my brother in laws buggy spinning47" LTBs and he hasn't had an issue. Normally the ones I see broke are the ones running home made high steer arms. I'm not saying OTC is the best but they seam to be working out so far.

Not sure what brand they are. I am running grade 9 bolts now. I am also running 47" LTB's and have the same size rams but from TSC.
