Do you know what forces affect shock linkage in these spots? I was wondering if it's possible to replace these steel bolts with alu versions or is Ti the only possible replacement?

These are pinch bolts. If you were to compare then to the stem/headset arrangement, the pivot bolts are the headset preload (but with linkage forces added) and the pinch bolts are your stem bolts (with some linkage forces added). Their job is to clamp the main pivot bolt and prevent it from loosening.

Ti at the least

Not alloy

Ah, but it looks much cooler with a carbon shock linkage though. Mind you, you might actually have to point that one out to people as its not an obvious upgrade
