Broke leg

Once again while goofing off, I have destroyed something. I decided to do a couple donuts and "clean the engine out", I twisted the right rear axle shaft in half. So after being in 4hi for a few miles back to the house and getting an earfull from the wife, anyone know who makes some stout axle shafts? Gonna get all 4 and be done with it and if there is room, maybe swap to cv's on the front. Thanks ahead of time for any tips.

Dang man that's insane! I have seen the chunk rotate in the axle tubes on a Sterling, broke pinions, and a cracked carrier, but never seen a shaft let go in one! Lol and all the carnage I have seen with a Sterling was turning 44 inch tires. RCV makes the Ultimate Full Floater axles that you can get in 300M. Ultimate Full Floater Rear Axle

I had the centers gone through and beefed up, but was lazy about the shafts and just went with what was there. With what the cr puts out, i can't complain, they made it this long with plenty of severe use.

I tore into the front as well and the hubs look pitiful, they are chewed up pretty bad and the bearings look like a few hundred thousand miles of wear, so I'll have to look into that as well.I am really surprised I haven't twisted a windshield out as the frame will twist pretty bad on a 20psi launch.

Thanks for the link, I got in touch with them this morning and they were very surprised I trashed a shaft vs a wheel or lug nut.

Strange makes a full floater axle. I was just talking to them yesterday. They didn't work with starlings, but it's a inch and a half axle 35 spline. They were like 385 bucks. But you may have to send in a spider gear. Also you could call a place called twisted customs in rapid city sd. He pioneered 300 m axle shafts and u joints. He will let you know a good rout to go.
