Default chrome plated shanks???problems

ok ..so I finally broke down my whole system to clean..way to long..I have ss foreward seal facuets with 3/16 inner shanks chrome plated. I looked inside the shanks and its seems to have coroded...anyone else have this problem?? The beer started to taste a bit off so it was time to clean everything..should I just jump into an all ss set up?? MIcromatic has 1/4 ID ss shanks..just need some advice on this..anyone else use 3/16 lines into 1/4 shanks??work well.??
