I am building a v-storm exo skeletal kit car with triumph front vertical links. I understand that there is history of failures of link, possibly due to stress corrosion in threaded area.
I am not sure of standard supplied with kit, but would ask those who know, what is the fix/uprated link that overcomes this problem.

There are a few creeping into the market now, but I think the most popular, well engineered solution is the Canley Classics kit.

I believe there are variations though depending on if the car is Herald / Spitfire / Vitesse / GT6. https://www.canleyclassics.com/suspension-steering-and-brakes/trunnionless-front-suspension-kit

The main differences are the hub bearings and caliper carrier, but the actual geometry of how they bolt between the upper and lower wishbones are identical between all 4 vehicles. GT6 and Vitesse are probably most sought after due to the larger hub bearings.
