    So this kit is extremely beefy and I cant picture ever breaking it. The hardware I got has some flat spots on the threads which I had to use a die to get off. The knuckle side of the drag link either had the wrong threads or something because none of the spherical ends would thread in. I wound up having to tap the threads to get the rod end in. There were some nicks on the bar I'm guessing from shipping and handling but they will need painted so they don't rust. Overall its good just the small stuff with the threads added an hour to my install time.
