Is there any aftermarket metal upgrade for the upper and lower bearing blocks?

I've never seen any third party ones but I can say the Thunder Tiger ones are top notch. I used the plastic ones for the longest time and then up-blinged a little with the metal TT ones :-)

I have seen a picture from someone who had a plastic block fail. The way it failed looked like the bearing was turning in the block until it wore the plastic away.

It looks like it would be a good idea to glue the bearings in the plastic blocks to make sure they can't turn.

In the UK it is strange that shops have stock of the upper block but not the lower. It doesn't make sense to me for people to only buy the lower block or the shops to have ordered a different number of each.
