I've got the rod ended style duff arms and had the front end apart and noticed a new crack. Last year I noticed one around the ears and had it welded up now it seems its cracking in a new spot. Just wondering what people are doing to beef up their duff arms?

Photobucket isn't allowing me to upload any new pics:(
 






Heres a couple pics of the cracked ears I had welded last year.

I'm going to get the crack welded up, but am wondering what other guys are doing to stop the cracking? Maybe some sort of bracing?
 






I know this thread is over a month old now, however, I just found it. I have the rod ended duff arms also. This concerns me. Sooo, I will be checking them for cracks before I go back out to the trails.
