So you are using Dana 44 ttb outers? Why not 2wd ends and knuckles? I’m just curious
Work is absolutely amazing thus far, thanks for sharing

Cast vs. forged. First set of beams I made for the Expo (which is further back in this post) were cast 2wd ones and I kept breaking the spindles and bearings. I've always heard the cast ones are weaker, however, I never seemed the crack or bend the ends themselves.
