    Fall-out straps? help save axles?

    I broke an outer axle u-joint, because I stiffened the springs to keep from bottoming out on jumps. Had this random idea to use (shock)/(fall-out) straps like a real trophy truck. Any thoughts?

    in my opnion the LT rocker arms makes the suspension very soft and it will bottom out all the time. you will bottom out less if u change the rockers to the P2 rockers from the merv. Plus the angles the LT rockers and the rear a arms add extra stress to the shafts. Change the stock summit shafts to the merv shafts they are alot stronger and supriseingly (cant spell) stronger then the summit shafts.

    The straps have the same effect as putting spacers in the shocks.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
