Stainless Steel Exhaust Studs?

Got these from the local shop. They're stainless steel exhaust studs which the shop assured me where better than the normal mild steel ones. I thought that stainless steel and aluminium reacted badly together? Should I install them or not?
Cheers Mark

Not all stainless is equal. I'd install with antiseize. Stainless set screws might be an option since they have a hex drive on one end.

Install them with a coating of phillips milk of magnesia, they will last forever and come out easily if you ever need to take them out.
Make sure you use it on the nuts also.

Just dont use stainless steel nuts when you put the exhaust on or you may never get it apart!!
