Okay, is the FF 14 bolt really that much stronger than a Semi floater? Semi floating 14 bolts are very easy to convert to six lug. Opinions, Ideas???

mind you I have not broken a Cruiser rear end yet. Although with the 38.5's it may just be a matter of time <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Thanks!!!

I have never heard of someone shearing six studs off of a axle. In fact I have seen rims fail before the studs do. So that is not a big concern for me. And I am going to weld up the spider gears or put a mini spool in it. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
