I bought some of these when I did my mark update on Lazarus.
I just thought they were defective, and returned them to Advanced.
I thought the whole reason for the crimp was to make it impossible to get off, until I noticed the spindle damage.
If it's re-turning my freaking spindle to a new shape, I Do Not Want!!
I reused my factory bolts with red locktite also.
I may replace these 10 more times, best case.
I want that spindle to still be there.
3-5 years a set; ok, maybe 5 more times, lol.
Amazing how the factory ones lasted 15 years or so, right?
