Re: axle breaking problems because of lift kits
Their are alot of things that factor into axle breakage.
Maybe poor heat treat from PoPo, maybe it happened to be in the right position with the right peddle to the floor, busted boot? sticks? rocks? who knows....
I don't baby mine at all, but if I play hard I expect to have to replace parts with beefier parts and find the next weak link. If you are breaking the cage then maybe the lift would have something to do with it, but mine twisted the shaft clean.
I have had lifted trucks, jeeps, right now an FJ and Jeep all of my life, the lift in itself won't break an axle unless it's a piss poor design... Add big tires, throttle, and a tight spot and you will probably break a weak axle.
