    \"Shotgun Robzilla\" No more

    Well boys and girls, the day has come, I am going to pick up my new both side front cromo axles from Superior on Friday while in CA on business. I picked up my 2 OX u joints today. Last weekend I installed my rear Superior cromo shafts for the 12 bolt.

    So........ I think the axle breakage is going to come to an end??? Maybe??? Superior has told me the doubt very I will ever break the shafts if I run OX or CTM. They say the hub will break first. We will see, going to flog them real good like this weekend on Woodies Wash.....

    I will snap a few pics of the OX ujoints before I put them in friday night. They are kinda cool looking.

    So, no more Snap Crackle & Pop from Rob for a while at least..

    See everyone out at Florence this weekend.

    Rob

    Good to hear Rob! Although the sound of an axle snapping gave the guys with me a thrill they had never heard before! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
    Ive heard my share.
    Just out of curiosity... has anyone ever broken a front axle in a D44 BEFORE the u-joint broke? Any I have ever seen, the u-joint breaks, then takes off the axle ears... the axle is fine until the joint breaks. On those chromo axles, are the ears stronger than regular as well? Could a guy get away with just putting some OX joints in a std axle shaft and be stronger?

    You bet!.. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I'll prolly be running a D44 front long after everybody's given up on them..... BUT - I'll have to agree w/ the 1 ton crew - There's no such thing as a bulletproof D44 /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
