Default titanium skrews?

Hi I have a xray FK05 touring car and have keeped bending skrews that hold the hinge pin for the rear a-arm. This is a pain to fix and I was wondering if titanium skrews will stop it from bending? Thanks.

Stainless Steel should be the best thing.

Steel in stronger than Titanium. The advantage of Titanium is that the weight is less than steel, but stronger than aluminum.

If you want to stop bending screws, slow down, learn to setup your car better, and stop hitting the walls. These screws aren't bending by themselves.

When your car crashes, something's got to give.
I'd rather bend screws than break or bend more expensive parts.
