    Turtle shafts are reinforced but if you break a dog bone you have to modify the new ones. His come modified.

    What are you doing you are breaking drive lines? can you take photos of your DB and show us?

    Are you running anything in the rear to bring the ride hight up? If so have the dog bones fallen out on you?

    I have the Phadaddy and Ramtech springs. I never have had any dog bones pop out.

    I'm wondering if the dog bones are binding under full extension of the shocks. I had some ugly home made brace that lowered the shocks down some. I had nothing but problems running it this way, I noticed some binding in the dog bones also

    From the looks of the first picture, it seem the dog bone is bent. This would be a sign of some binding going on some where. If this were happening to me, I would not spend too much money right away. I'd find the cause of all the problems. Do you still run the axel boots on the dog bones? Could it be something got jammed in there? Tear it apart and see what you find

    When the wheels are at full extension pull the wheel down harder by hand as if it was being pulled in a tumble. Possible they are over extending at that point.
    Haven't heard any issues with Phatdaddy's except those running Ramtech arms otherwise people seem to be very happy the Phataddy brace.
