Good ol' LBSC used to recommend - instruct - that pistons should be half 
screwed onto the piston
rod.  The other half should be a tight push fit, the reduced size being the 
same as the OD of the
thread.  The screwed part was at the outer end, of course!  That way 
concentricity and security
was assured.
