so i was driving home from a chicks house and i look down and my rpm's shoot real high. i let off and hear a boom, hit the breaks and they were gone. i shut the truck off and let it coast...looked up and hi wheel. there it went right past me. the shaft gave way. not normal it just broke where the c-clip goes. i will get pics up in a few min or in the pm. just thought i should let you know. got a little body damage from the shaft hitting the truck but i can fix it. also the truck is going to a "street queen" now

Been there, done that. Its not fun, especially at 60mph. "Hi wheel" is exactly the frame of mind that you have. Then you go into an, "OH SHIT" phase.

His axle shaft broke and came out the housing and rolled past him. not just the wheel came off.

What the heck do you guys do to your trucks to make that happen or is just a comman problem with 10 bolts. Pretty lousy if you ask me

If your truck is a half ton, there is a good possibility your can do that with 46's

Usually it's from wheeling and or hard street driving. Burnouts, brakestands, that type of thing... but there are always exceptions... every pound of rolling mass you add to your truck inceases your risk of breaking parts.
