Heavy HD tie rod, hydro assist and tie rod droop

I have read about every page and post regarding tie rods and hydro assist.

My question is: has anyone found a way to better position a heavy duty tie rod and hydro assist (or even stabilizer setup) to better support the weight?

My heavy HD tie rod tends to droop forward after time, pinching the tie rod ends and ripping them.

I have this crazy idea of a light limiting strap, or something to the hydro assist body. NUTS??? I ideas??

energy suspension makes heavy ones, not sure on the Daystar. call Poly Performance and ask them what they use.
