Default RE: hardened steel rods

I am wanting the rods for my mechanical retracts. I have a z bend in the rods and a very powerful retract servo (JR super heavy duty) and I have had one of the rods start to straighten back out. I think if I had hardened rods that this wouldn't happen. I will try the oven thing. I thought that heat treating was done with higher temperatures than 450 degress.
