SS would be loads better than carbon steel.

NOT SO. SS is weaker than the usual Gr 5 bolt material used. SS can do some funny [not] corrosion tricks where a steel bolt will simply rust giving warning of an impending problem.

Not saying not to use it but do not just assume that SS is better in applications like this.
