    I have the aluminum ones and havn't broke or bent one yet, Just a few rod ends. If you hit something at highspeed pretty much no matter what you put on there will bend. I always set up my suspension so that on bottom out the skids will hit the ground

    Iv bashed a lot with both red alum and stock push rods. Iv bent both type of rods. The red alum rods bend a little easier and upset me when they bend because there more pricey. The stocks are a little tuffer but can still bend. It dose not upset as much when the stocks bend because they are a dime a dozen. I stick with using stock rods now and have a few extras as back up.

    Hmm.. I had the opposite experience, the stock rods did bend really fast, even on small impacts. The aluminum rods are still in perfect condition and i have had them for much longer than the stock rods.

    I have also had this experience - stock bent - had red toe links and pushrods for ages now without issues!!


    Bash it like someone else is doing the wrenching!
