CTM axle joints for Dana 44

Just read the reviews on here....Anybody running them got any feed back. Kinda steep price on them. Just want to see if they are really worth it. Sticking a detroit up front and i know I will blow the ones I have now out. Any other u-joints the compare or you had good luck with? Who has the best price on them? What do ya think about sticking them in stock shafts?

Basically, there have only been a very few broken, I have only seen 1 picture of a broken one. That was a 60.
using them with stock shafts....well, your shaft will blow pretty quickly.
If you want to use stock shafts and a stronger joint that is cheap, go with longfields super joints. they are strong, I can vouch for that. I am running them in my 60 and my friend was running them in his 44. he tore his spindle off his knuckle and ripped the shaft off the joint, the joint didn't fail at all.
As for ctm's, I can't tell you anything you probably haven't read already

Thanks, I'm wanting to stick with the stock shafts until I blow them out to give me a better reason to buy new ones. I'll see if I can find these Longfields now. Been out of the 4 wheel drive seen for a couple years and got into drag cars so now Im trying to catch up on all the new stuff out.

If you're going to run longfields in stock axle shafts you'll have to grind the insides to clear full circle circlips.

No biggie, I have a machine shop. I believe Im going to go ahead and get Moser shafts though. Any feedback on them. I've ran them out back in my 9" for years and no problem. Just not sure about fronts.
