Rear dif u-joint explosion - part 2
I finally found the time to crawl under the Samurai tonight and found that the U-joint at the differential end of the rear driveshaft has started to disintegrate again.
This is the second u-joint to go since I installed the 1.6...
I sometimes get the feeling that I am experiencing axle wrap when I start up at an intersection. I have a Breeze SPOA and stock rear springs.
This is my backup daily driver and I am not very interested in something as complicated as "traction bars" (I'm sure that is not the correct name, but you get the picture, I hope), etc.
Would a Toyota DC driveshaft graft be a suitable solution for the violent changes in driveshaft angles? Or would stronger rear springs be a better choice?
