Bolt Question

I have a lame bolt question. I recently replaced the M8 1.25 pitch bolts on the back of the truck. The ones that bolt the body to the rear bumper. I think there are normally 10 of them. Well I replaced them with 8.8 instead of 10.8. I didn't notice this untill later. My question is, do you think this will hold up? The PSI strength of an 8.8 is approximately 30% weaker than a 10.8 but I am not sure how much stress there is back there. Any way, I thought I would check before I go back to the store and end up with the 12.8! Thanks

I do not believe that connection area is "load bearing". I think you would shear the aluminum panels before shearing the bolts...

Thanks guys. I just wanted to be sure, I don't want my tub to rip apart. That would be tacky.
