Default Pics so you can see what I'm doing

Here are a couple of pics so you can see what I'm into. The rivets I'm most concerned with hold the rear stub on and also attach the front spring shackle bracket to the frame on both sides. My main concern is the integrity of the frame where the rear stub attaches to the front frame. I would be removing the rear(spare tire) cross member and the cross member at the front spring shackle as pictured. Again at assembly would grade 8 hardware be a suitable substitute for the factory rivets?
thanks, Dennis
