I got a set of Crane Golds with over 70K miles on them. Been from Victoria to PEI and back about 10 times in a S10 and was a daily driver for 3 years as well. Went through many bronze distributor gears, but never broke one rocker arm. And they were clearanced about 10 years ago with a die grinder for larger springs. I forget the spring pressures, but they were on a 383 sbc with a very large solid roller cam with dual springs that look like they could support a small car. I do think the time is soon coming to retire them though. I think *quality* is more important than what the rockers are actually made out of. I don't think I would use any $100 ebay special "street beat" type of aluminum roller rockers on a daily driver. Come to think about it, if they are not good enough for a daily driver, I don't think I would use them on a weekend warrior or race engine, either.
