    finally got around to swappin my busted ass axle shafts today. both of em were cooked. i know when 1 of em happened, but im not quite sure when the other went. my stepdad mentioned 1 may have caused the other(lockright).

    anyways, the stub that broke shattered. several pieces, kinda messy. then i look at the inner that broke on the other side and it is a super clean break. looks like it was done on the band saw or somethin.

    just curious what yall's experiences have been.

    regardless, this is #3 and #4 that the lockright has claimed :haha:

    I broke my shaft doing a brake stand on dry pavement.

    My 305 is like the little engine that could... :haha:




    Actually probably the lock rite and the 35s really did it in. :rolleyes:
