Ball detents need to be replaced... Wire detents don't, unless you F with them.... From my experiences I never had to replace my wire detent from my Free Flow,.. But on my 99 STO I had to replace the ball after awhile because of the wearing on it.. But that is what happened to me ;-)

i got a dlerin ball detent to match the delrin on my superfly. works perfect, no wear on the ball, and no marks on my superfly. if you get a wire detent you need a body made for them.
