Angry Crown HD steering rusted after 4 months

I installed the Crown HDSTRGCR1 HD steering kit in October. When I got it the tie rod boots were different on the drag link and tie rod than the tie rod ends but it all bolted up and fit. Now only a few months later, the tie rod ends, sleeves, and all the hardware is badly and completely rusted. The tie rod and drag link are fine but EVERY other piece is completely rusted.

They have approved an RMA, but before I re-order and do this all over again I'd like to know I will not end up with the same issue... I still have my 17 year old stock (not rusted) parts I suppose I could swap back on...

Anyone else here have this issue with Crown? Or did I just get a bad batch of EVERY piece.

Honey... How much money do we have in the bank?

You can rust proof the parts if you set on that steering system. Just use KBS rust seal and then the blacktop top coat. I have used this on my frame and axles and it works great.
Anything worth doing is worth over doing!
