Re: Where to get WARN hubs?
U can help you here (spoke with WARN about them).
The are made for the U-297X u-joints. The sheer strength is set below the breaking strength of the u-joint, when dringing straight ahead. When turned, the U-joint is weaker, and may break before the u-joint sheers. Also, the "fast-slow-fast" effect of the u-joint at an angle also impacts the fuse (why? I dunno).
On the Zooks, we's gots CVs so there is no "fast-slow-fast" effect.
I figure they are realitively cheap, and would way easier to replace than an axle. I think they will sheer before a axle twists off in the carrier (assuming the birf is ringed).
Also, I hear they really fucck up diffs/carriers if a Detroit-style locker is used and the fuse lets go. No effect on Spools, OX's and ARBs.
I got them on my GV. Will go with them on the Sammy someday.
