Don't go there.

The rubber content must be very specific.

You cannot replace the rubber rods, unless you can deform them correctly, and then freeze them to MINUS 240 degrees below zero.

Others have tried, with a "ZERO" success rate.

It is simply not possible to replace them without some liquid nitrogen, a form press and some other special tools. Also, the rubber is a very unique formulation.

And, this is my 500th post!
