He's running stage 2 injectors and a DP Tuner and its a dually on 35s. Its been breaking them since he bought the truck. I don't think its a power related issue though guess we'll get to dig deeper this time.

That's what I'm thinking or maybe the end of it wasn't machined flat

Should be easy enough to check with a dial indicator.
