Nah, a quality rod end will last quite a while under DD use. I've got them on my rear bar, and they've been fine for a year or so, including Rochester winter.

I check them whenever I'm under the car, and I do have spares ready, but they are fine. A bit of surface rust on the housing, but the joint itself is perfectly fine.

I'm sure junky ones will corrode faster.

my tripoints on the sway bar haven't had any issues, I guess it will 100% where you live.

Just curious about that setup with adjustments to bump steer, along with steering tightness how much it "would" improve, if it even could.
