i have an 8,8 in my xj and i've bent three stock axleshaft and have just bent another. will a chromoly hold up to bending at the flange or is chromoly more to prevent snappage? I dont remember doing anything any of the times to bend them.

ok wow what the ...ive beat my welded 8.8 mercilessly on 35's and so did the previous owner on 37' and its fine so there might be more than meets the eye going on here.

i dont think its a problem with the housing. its been one side or the other over the last couple seasons. its not like its a constant problem bending them it just happens. just trying to find out if chromos will help with bending at the flange
