    You need to make sure your angles of operation are ok. Then you need to droop the axle down and check for binding of the ujoint. If you bind a ujoint you will most likley break the ujoint. You are binding one somewhere or somehow.

    It is usually to much operation angle, to much angle during droop, or axlewrap.
