Having explored replacing wires I found most good servo's have the solder points coated and a tight job at that, so I went the other way.
Good ternimal crimper for servo leads and such http://www.hansenhobbies.com/
- get the ratchet version, you'll need it!
I've bought one, realised you wouldn't wan't to crimp with a cheapy and the end product is awesome. Lots of accessories there too. Service was great and watch the video it was most informative.
