Not till you get into 1 inch shanks that the ends become 1 ton. Not many folks build this and it is going to be tough to incorporate that into a Dana30 axle.
Waiting for pictures or at least a description of the steering.
Well I picked the axles up this weekend and I would say the steering on it is at least twice as thick as my stock setup. I got home to late tonight for pictures. but I will get some tomorrow after I get the axles cleaned up.
