Default grade (and material) of ball bearings for freehub rebuild

I have an oem wheel that I'm having trouble replacing the freehub so I took apart the freehub and found .125" ball bearings. What grade of ball bearing will suffice for such an application. In addition , should I use carbon steel/chrome steel or stainless balls? Thanks Pat

They are called 1/8" and standard replacements are chrome
steel grade 25.
