    Gluing rod ends?

    I just had a rod end pop off on the rear of my erbe2.0 and I was thinking about gorilla brand hot glue...do you think it could stop it for a while with the hot glue???

    I ditched the plastic rod ends and went with the aluminum Hot Racing rod ends. I then used thread lock on them. They won't pull off the shaft nor will they round out like plastic. That combined with limiting straps in the rear make a solid setup!

    I use ca glue on mine. Hot glue won't work need super glue or something else that will bond to the metal and plastic well. Gorilla glue may work if u got it.

    But I still have issues. I ordered shorter straps 85mm vs my 90. Will see how that helps. 90mm worked for a while but now doesn't. Thought I originally had 85mm but didn't...

    Guess if strap change doesn't work I'll go to aluminum ends.

    I understand now that we are talking about shock absorber rod ends and not push rods
