    Is there a problem with the OEM clutch rod? I've never had a problem with it.
    After 200k mi, the ends are a little worn and got sloppy, but that's about it.
    I put a brand new one in during my Frame off.
    My buddies truck had realy rusty body mounts, every time he pressed the clutch, his body would lift off the frame a little, but no problems with the rod?

    The ends are worn so bad that they are about to break off.

    reinforcement!..

    I've slid over and welded a hunk of 1/8" pipe or 3/8"rebar on a few rusted clutch linkage on plow trucks,to get some more use out of one...had to weld a brace on the "Z" bar on a few trucks with 12" three finger pressure plates too--they flex and eventally crack if you leave it stock...:crazy:
