I've heard and read so many complaints about the repop rods. Everything from them breaking, not having enough tension to hold the lid up and also them losing their tension in about a month. It's so much trouble (and a little dangerous) to swap them out, I'm afraid to even try a set of repops. Furthermore, the original GM RH for spoiler cars were .275" and it seems all the repop RH are only .257". It's not just the GM repops that have huge complaints on the internet either, it's also Ford, Chrysler, etc. I believe the major auto manufacturers back in the day had Metallurgists working for them that understood the hardening and tempering processes of spring steel to make dependable, long lasting and functional rods. The people over in China making these things today are probably just using and bending cheap, low quality high carbon, incorrectly processed steel rods and they are not performing as intended. I've called around to almost all the Camaro parts houses and they all say there are having a lot of complaints and returns on the repop rods. Are there more than one manufacture of these rods? If so, who seems to make the best or strongest I should say?
