I use kit bearings throughout the car. I know PW uses ceramics on the out drives. From what I've heard, the ceramics are too fragile to run in the hubs. One hard hit and they're done.

What do you mean stripped?? As I don't think you could strip the torx head? Do you mean you have over tightened the screws into plastic parts and they no longer do up tight, they just keep turning??

If so, there's nothing wrong with the screws??

Jon, I have had a good experience with ceramics. Maybe I have not had the "Right" hit, but I am hard on equipment, and my cermaics have been good since I put them in for the snowbirds. That being said, the kit bearings are good, just maintain them like any bearing, and you will be fine.

Yeah, like I said, I haven't had any personal experience with them. Just what others have dealt with and I don't want to drop $100+ on ceramics to have them possibly grenade on me.

They're not really "better" they're easier to build, easier to get consistant. They're a very good design. Probably the best designed shock out right now.
