the yoke at the end of the shaft that goes into the spindle was gone so there was more then just changing the u-joint come on make it sound like he was doin something really cool and then busted his shit come on from the sound of it you know him and your suppost to make him look good not some guy who just broke a cross and had to change it [cheers]

[cheers] I do know the guy and it was good..Ya thats what I ment it snapped the u joint off then the shafts binded then it took the yoke off the stub shaft....Thats expected tho..Apparently 49s dont like to be dropped to the ground at a high rpm..:confused0006: .Last time he blew out the hub lock out. Warn replaced it under warranty. They recomended goin to a solid hub but u would be screwed if u mangled ur diff inside i would think?? Thats too bad that white 350 didnt have its front shaft, it woulda been good to see... and he woulda went in more places with his 49s but if he got stuck way in there there wasnt anyone who woulda got colse..Was a good day tho..Be back sunday

Hubs are a easy fix

drive flanges would not give thus destroying a more expensive harder to replace component every time.

move the weak link to the cheapest easiest replaceable area if one can afford 49's then a fused drive shaft would be the best bet.

What does a fused driveshaft allow? Cost of them. Might be something worth looking into..

Basically a shaft that has 2 companion flanges that are sleeved so when the fuse goes it does not drop but will spin harmless until you shut it down..

you can get links(FUSES) in a assorted range of strength to allow tweaking of your driveline.
takes like 5 minutes to swap new links in
basically a shear strength set up not cheap initially but worth it in time and costly half shafts or worse...
