Broken wastegate actuator rod

This is the second one that snapped in 2 years. They break at the base of the threads. Anyone have any ideas what is causing this? I have been told it is not too uncommon but I cannot find many that have actually had it happen. Everything appears to be lined up straight with no binding. Before I modified the mounting bracket it was a little tweaked to one side when I connected the wastegate.

I just have a whole extra turbo assembly in the trailer with the waist gate and everything ready to bolt on. I figure if I have it then I'll never break an adjuster rod!

I was going to try and reuse it with the coupler but I always end up with about 1-1/2 threads at the break. $50.00 for spare, should have already been in the toolbox.
