I don't think they're stainless, so be prepared for rust city. Thats a big part of the advantage of the higher priced sleeves. They're made from stainless so they won't rust onto the tie rods. But for that price, it'd be hard to say no I think.

No rust because your in Texas :D They'll probably never have any rust on them down there! Up here where the roads are covered in salt, plain carbon steel will rust in a day or two :eek:

With the right prevention measures taken, here in Texas, steel tie rod stiffeners will work just fine !!

I also had the problem with them nt
or fitting over my moog rods. But a drill press fixed that pretty easily. I think the fact that they're machined to that close of a tolerance to the stock rods says something about the quality

mine are standing up really well. No rust either in all of this hellish multi-blizzard salt.

If you're that worried, maybe use some lock-tite medium or something to protect the threads???

Mine are holding up good and they are have some sort of anodized coating on them so i don"t think rust will be a big issue.

They are zinc plated. I have had mine for over a year and they have held up well. Especially for the price. They are not quite as long as some of the competition but that has not been an issue with me either. I have done several boosted launches on them and still no problems. I have also hammered it pretty good off road and no issues
