I plan to run one - I have bad wheelhop and wrap in the front. No broken u-joints yet I`m thinking due to HP, and a CV Driveshaft so it hasn't been able to get at such a steep angle where it cracks the ears or u-joints.

I`m 99% sure it will be very noticable since on full throttle assaults I can really feel the front end go crazy.

I'm just thinking out loud here and I may be wrong but........
Which way does the front dif want to swing while it torques :confused:
On my rig I have such a steep angle to the front driveline that if the dif was to swing in an upward direction during axle wrap it would actually improve that angle. Therefore less likely to break a pinion or a u-joint.
Another thought is whether or not a shackle reversal or cut and turned knuckles would have any part in this.

See that's what happens when I start thinking :shaking: Thanks for the info, with that in mind I'm really surprisd I haven't broken anything on my front end. SOA, steep driveline and no cut and turn to compensate. :(

hmmms so if you ran a ladder bar type setup in the front it would try to suck the chassis down under hard acceleration. i could see the benefits on any nasty hill climb where its nice to be able to suck the front suspension down anyway.

but coupled with some anti squat with a rear bar it would be quite a weird feeling on the road.
