Single biggest reason for breaking a Snyder kingpin is misadjusted pivots. The Snyder parts are plenty strong enough but if the pivots are off, usually too short, they'll break.

Contrary to popular belief, the titanium kingpin is not stronger. Quite the opposite. Titanium is stronger for a given weight than steel. I've seen them bend and break. And the Snyder Titanium kingpins have been gone for several years.

The Kingpin from a Bont Infinity will fit, however, if you want titanium.
