Grinding them will not cause them to last any less time than using a cheapie rocker at 7200. That's not the weakest point anyway. The weakest point is in the fulcrum area. That rocker bouncing around at 7200 with 370 pounds over the nose at 600' lift can only be expected to last so long. You don't need much to be taken off. In fact, if you radius the inner body closest to the spring and polish afterward I'll bet it'll be stronger than the original casting. Whatever rocker you do get, if you chose that route, ensure it's from billet not cast. Summit brand rocker's are some of the best looking cheapie's I've seen so far.
