    Well, the Aluminum Push Rods/Toe Links will be lighter. Which drive shafts are you talking about? Center Drive Shafts or the ones from the diffs to the wheels? A lot of guys with the ERBE use the Summit Long Half Shafts from the diffs to the wheels.

    I found the hard way that alloy pushrods and toe links bend easier then the stock steel ones whit big air...,the alloy one would just bend and the other issue I had was popping the plastic ball end off the steel pushrod, I put some rpm ball ends on the pushrods and haven't popped one off again yet, I have bent the rods and they are easily unbendable with pliers unlike the alloy ones they wont unbend well....I was eating up 2 rear driveshafts every run sometimes I wouldn't even get an entire run in before one broke and ime currently trying to get the 5154r axle shafts to work and ill have to let you know on that as ime having fitment issues with the extended a arms...

    For me I would think steel for strength and aluminum for style. I installed the 5650 e-revo center drive shaft. I am not sure you can get put on different drive shafts due to they are unequal length when using the stock locking diffs.
