Response to When you think about it you have the stock cast Alum Stands, the FoMoCo iron stands w/ a
in the stands but then Ford Engineers were a lot smarter than me. If the shaft is a fairly snug fit through the stand it isn't going anywhere so why weaken the stand by cutting one side out? As for end stands, I never broke a shaft without them but many have so why not at the price. Just looking at the stock setup tells you it's a problem area waiting to happen as soon as you add spring pressure.
