i'm too much of a lazy arse to lookup the thread link, but roverwrench had gone so far as to machne a groove into the stub axle, trying to make double damn sure it would be the weak link. also, the groove helps it break cleanly (hoping for a clean snap). i thought this was a pretty novel idea meself
i have to say though that jeff hasn't gotten much love on this thread- c'mon guys, follow bodge's lead here and help a brutha out! i remember an awful lot of big talk on the "broken axle" thread . . . not much mention of stubbys in it, though. i'm curious to hear feedbak on this as well, with an impending front-end rebuild somewhere on the horizon.
