    Might want to PM the White Knight on this one. I don't think anyone on the board has more experience than they do.

    Same as shocks or hyd cylinders. Its not good for them but their outer rod seals are designed to wipe away dirt.

    We bent the rod in the coil over. The bracket off the link sheared off which made the link go and shifted the diff sideways. Carnage- front pinion and bent the king coild over rod. The base metal on the bracket should have been thicker material and was the only one that was not gusseted. We replaced the rod and all is good.
