View Full Version : Breaking axles

Well, I went through an axle breaking spree. I think I found the reason. I thought iswas because I welded the front diff, but after puting in new gears and axles I think I found the real reason. NO STEERING stops. When I put the new stuff in I turned the wheels lock to lock and found the the U joints where binding and my steering stops had broken off. Put in new stops, so now I'll go and put it through some testing[36]

for me it has been the yokes deforming and spitting the C clips out of the ujoints

No stops.. That would be a good reason. Don't need to be destroying the new set up.
