Default MT metal tie rods, turnbuckles

I am interested in replacing all my tie rod ends with metal. The plastic tie ends with the swivels have a lot of variance in slop from Redcat. I bought some extra steering rods with 4 ends of which I got 3 good ends. I've got 2 rod ends on the car with a noticeable play between the ball and the yoke. I would expect going to metal would eliminate this play.

How do the metal ends wear?
What are alternative turnbuckles I can use other than Redcat?
Can I use ends from Losi/HPI/MCD/FG on my Redcat turnbucles?

Metal rod ends hold up way better than plastic. They do weigh more but the strength is far better. I can make my onw kits buy just buying the rode ends. Much cheaper than buying a full kit.
