    Toe links/ pushrods

    So I've used stock, aluminum trx, and gpm toe links and pushrods. Stock is....well stock, trx, the rod ends become oblong, and the gpm's seem to bend where the rod end attatches to the threads, kinda like the thread diameter is too small for the rod end. I'm not even being hard on them, just zipping around the street and front yard. What's the bullet proof option here?

    I've had my eye on the hr ones, went the gpm's cause they were cheaper. And have less then ten packs through and I've already straightened them several times. Also I already use the hr aluminum knuckles and haven't had a problem with them.

    i hate to ginx it but the HR's dont break, for me anyway, knock on wood, ive beat the living crap out of them and good to go...

    if you do get them though put loctite on the tie rod ends, they are a bit loose and will screw unscrew easy, once i did this no probs...

    I'm finding, that a lot of parts need Locktite. Lol today my steering was acting up, and I discovered the screw was missing out of my servo horn. That was a first.
