Simple as yes, it is definately worth the money, the stock piece is fairly easy to break, and you will never break the aluminum piece.

but when you strengthen one thing you take the chances of breaking something more expensive, like if you use graphite
A arms, there 12 dollars for 2, and a pivot block is about 4 dollars, so...its a win lose situation...

but if you break a rear arm its a some-what simple repair, a pivot block takes a while to fix, anything you improve will put the strain on another part no mater what you do.

the only way to prevent this is build your truck or buggy and set it on a shelf and just look at it.
