I made a bunch of surgical prototypes last year and we tried 301 high yield which has the highest ksi of any cold-worked stainless, ended up with 17-7 machined condition C, treated to rockwell 53. Gave us the most memory.

These were for a knee-replacement system. Probably overkill for our purposes
Cobalt Chrome was knee replacement, bit of a teething problem with it at first , Has to be isolated with Peek plastic, or necrosis.

That said, it is way too brittle for vehicle and cost prohibitive.
17-4 in larger diameters harden well for vehicles or vessels.
