from what I've read on the XTZ's [no experience yet] it bends behind the jam nut on the threads .. they have longer nuts available to "help" but looks like after market beefy ones is the way to go to fix it right , and a couple posters have bent them mid point ... I have not read of the ends failing so far.
there is a thread about a potential issue with the ball joint clamp bolt suggest you read that one also.
