SS 3/8th boomerang shackles?

I am looking for some new shackles w/ bushings and hardware for my 87 YJ.. Has anyone ever had SS 3/8th boomerang shackles? Should I just get some SS or steel ones as they will be stronger? I live in Florida and drive on the beach.. having an old jeep I tend to buy and go for the Stainless Steel over steel. But steel shackles might be stronger than SS?

These are 304 SS (304 contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel)

Here they are front and back w/ bushings and hardware for 79.** - not bad!

I like em. 3/8ths is good too. Stainless is fine, no reason to worry about strength I don't think. Looks plenty strong to me.

nice shackles, I like the graphite bushings too. if I didn't allready have currie boomers I'd buy them.
also. don't worry about the stainless its actually stronger than regular steel.
