i think what might be happening is that the e clip that holds the pin in the yolk comes off. then the pin starts to wiggle out, and then the yolk snaps. i had this happen once, when i first got the truck. you may also want to double check the setting of your slipper clutch, it doesnt sound like its taking the stress off the driveline. good luck

Just went to the ghhobby website and looked at their products. That is exactly what I am looking for. Are their poarts of good quality. I would rather waste 8 bucks a time than 50. I would think the aluminum would never break again if I put them on and they are not really at a point where they would stress other parts to much.

rozzibandit,

What exactly is the problem you are having with them? You said you are breaking them, but did not say what is breaking. Are you popping the pillow balls out? Breaking the whole axle carrier?

Here is the link from above [link=http://www.ghhobby.com/ProdDetails.php?id=327]GH REVO Steering blocks[/link]

We will be coming out with ours soon.

Hello Roy, That is correct the pillow balls keep popping out and cracking off lil pieces of plastic along with it. If I can bullet proof that I wont have any more problems Also, i am I going to need aluminum caps that keep the pivot ball in place?? Or can I use the stock plastic caps that are on the stock steering blocks?

Don't you think the knuckles are made to allow the balls to pop out for a reason? I'd think changing to aluminum knuckles that didn't allow this to happen would simply break ball shanks.

My buddie bought those but they don't have such a way for the dust caps to mount. You can see what I mean [link=http://www.ghhobby.com/proddetail.php?prod=2251]here[/link]. [link=http://www.teknorc.com/product_info.php?cPath=39_66&products_id=522]These[/link] retainers are a better design. They cost more too however.
