I would like some suggestions on stainless steel or tungsten guide rods. Also what pound spring?

Stay with the factory recoil spring assembly

If you decide to replace it do yourself a favor and get a captured spring model like the Lightning Strike model from Brownell's - part no. 642-000-012. The one in my G23 has worked very well for many years. When it comes time to change springs you can still do so with just an Allen wrench. For general use keep a factory weight spring in the gun. There's also the LaserMax guide rod with an internal laser to consider. I have a 1st gen Crimson Trace unit on mine and while I like it, it doesn't work with all holsters.

Tungsten, very good stuff

Haven't tried it out yet but tungsten is good stuff.

Excellent advice! Nothing wrong with the factory RSA and they've been field tested with millions of rounds. Also the factory spring weight probablly is all right unless you mostly fire hot loads.

Gent on YouTube melted his after about 800 rounds I believe. Granted it was rapid fire, but it would not be a terrible idea to replace yours. The heavier rod will also decrease upward moment at the muzzle.

I've upgraded my gen4 17 and 27 with the steel rod from glockstore.com. I've been very happy with them, and the slightly added weight up front does seem to help my accuracy with double-taps.

I have a Tungsten in my gen 3 Glock 23 and I gotta say its one of the best investments i've made. Huge difference in the way it shoots. It really will help you keep on target.
