Being Nervous before a pull is a good thing.. I had one buddy that at a pull would have to use the porta poddy several times just before pulling onto the track.

It happens brother, I went 20 feet and snapped three axleshafts a couple weeks ago. The clamps are weaker. If you look at how they contact the cap, it only touches in two spots. The U bolts are way tougher.

Ya bought the spicer joints, actually joint never broke straps broke ripped caps off. I got 1480 for back 1410 for front and they came with the strap and 2 bolts.
Now for the yoke part im thinkin begin threaded will i just be able to drill them out for u bolts? Or i hav to hav diff yoke now? And am i able to buy them with u bolts?

I've had good luck with the billet straps. Way more beefier than the stock spicer stuff.

Get away from the u bolt and Straps .. Put a F7 Flange and joint on it and never break again.
