I spun a bearing and I need to purchase two things a rod or all four rods and a new crank. I was wondering what rods you suggest. I dont want to spend a lot of money and I would like to keep the stock pistons unless thats just a horrible idea and there is a good reason I shouldnt. Eagle is all I can think of but I was gonna poll the audience before I spend the money. I still need to locate a stock crank but there is no other option from stock unless I am going with a stroker kit. I will never surpass 300 hp but I plan on running around there later this year. or should I just get 1 replacement rod for the one that the bearing spun in? or just locate 4 used rods?

cliffnotes: what rods for a stock internal red top for under 600 should I buy?

call secret services. they can get what you need without hassle. 727.571.1450. I would go ahead and replace the four rods.

I've heard they are just as good if not better than eagle rods.

Are you 100% sure you even need to replace that rod? If a spun bearing caused enough damage to warrant replacement of a rod, then it is safe to assume the journal on the crank is even more [censored] up.

Ihatestupidity, agreed 100% (see my case and recent post). Man, where have you been hiding for the past months? Haven't seen you in a while on here.
