    So i have searched and searched and cannot find a single word review opinion or even detailed description of these or how they compare and perform. Does anyone here have an idea? I am breaking dogbones and have on order 8 of these hoping for more durability. I also ordered the mega travel center axles front and rear. My driveline should at least be smooth as blue bonnet.

    Thanks in advance!!

    I ran a center rear HB one for a while, but kept snapping the pin in the joint. Was ok with the LRP28, would break the pin once in a while, but with my LRP30, I busted it 3 times in the same day. I switched back to a standard black dogbone.

    You running the standard outer dogbones/cups/axles? Could always upgrade to the larger super HD parts. That's what I did on my X and it's holding up fine to an LRP30.

    The CVD's make things smooth, but not necessarily stronger, at least not once things start wearing a bit and slop causes parts to bang into each other.

    However it was smooth as butter while it lasted. Also noted the integy cvds i pulled out are slightly beefier than the HB. Excuse me i have a cvd to replace...

    I also case hardened them and quenched them in oil to add carbon to the steel......believe it or not i haven't broke one yet. A couple precise spot welds and home hardening is all it took, lol
