Ladder bars?

Hey all, it's been a very long time since I was on here last, however, I'm back. I have a new issue with my truck...
I am running close to 600HP and over 1000 foot pound torque. suspension is all stock minus helper air bags (haven't pressurized in a while). I have been burning bearings in y rear-dif. two weeks ago I threw a new ring and pinion at it, wound up having a horrible howling noise from the rear end. took it all apart and found...
1. all bearings are good
2. ring and pinion is good
3. pinion teeth marks found on spider gear casing
4. comparing old and new pinion, excessive ware on nose of old pinion compared to new.

Is axle wrap pushing new un-worn pinion into casing? who would diagnose more vs. just throw ladder bars at it and see what happens?

Thanks in advance!

who's off the shelf ladder bars are the best? Procomp, toughcountry etc.
Also I hate to bring this up... but I think I am going to switch out my MBRP 3.5 DP for a diamond eye 4 DP. I hope it will help my EGT gauge from jumping so quickly to 1200... who has any experience with temps switching from 3.5 to 4 DP, what did you see?

Pick any of them, they are all similar in each category. However, you have to decide whether you want something for the drag strip, road or off-road use. I would suggest you ensure they don't bind and get the off-road style.

Thanks for the advice. after more research; I think the pinion was not installed properly as in it was not pre-loaded. This said I am still going to put ladder bars on considering the torque and large loads I occasionally pull... even looking into a solid drive shaft.

Look into a set from One Up Offroad and they work for all applications. They are expensive but you get what you pay for.

2001 - 14" OUO 525 - 38x15.5x20 Toyo & 20x12 Weld Cheyenne's. Hybrids, 38R, BTS, Spearco, Terminators..

Looking at the ones from one up off-road. Leaning to the bolt on, don't wan to got brought the hassle of panting. Product description said the weld required set come as raw steel. Obviously to help with the welds. The top gun custom set were a little to "loud" for me. I am 100% worried about function and not appearance. What ever it takes to stop this axle wrap.
