Considering the quality of the steel used in the factory forgings isn't the best and that the journals are smaller than a LJ cast crank, it's prolly close to a wash between a forged SJ and cast LJ crank. If you were comparing the same size journals, then the forged crank would be stronger than a cast crank.
