My thinking is that it was the earth shaking axle hop that caused the issue.
An 8.8 with chromoly shafts is plenty strong to roast 37" rubber without all the up and down movement.

Either way there are a set of 60's getting crated and sent my way as I type this so my shit is for sure about to get upgraded....

I may shorten my ford kp60 and matching rear 60 in the future if the full width look really rubs me the wrong way.
