Default Ford Racing Caster Camber bolts?

Considering they are not very safe, I'm surprised Ford is selling camber caster bolts for the S197. Or are we overly cautious and they are not so unsafe? These are the ones I mean:

Bolts that can meet the same installation torque spec as the 'regular' bolts would be equally strong and capable of generating OE levels of bolt clamping load. I can't find the spec for these bolts, but the official Ford procedure for camber correction does use "camber bolts". Full strength camber bolts, and you have to do a little grinding to open up some holes in the strut 'ears' to get the available adjustment.

I figured they'd be ok. I don't think Ford would risk putting their name on them otherwise.
