G2 D44 quality?

I have been running G2 D44 front and back... 4.56 with Detroit in the rear and arb it the front... About 30K miles. Did some fairly mild crawling last weekend nothing I would consider extreme... And it was tackled with slow and steady ...NOT crash and mash... After rolling my rig off the trailer I noticed that the pass side upper control arm bracket tore clean off! There was little to no penetration on the weld into the bracket... Solid on the deletion tube...

Anyone else had issues with G2 weld quality?

Ground the axel tube and bracket... Welded back into place and added a bead across the back factory was just on either side.

i think G-2 is made in china. though i seen a Currie axle tube pull right out of the carrier once. Same thing no penetration on about 80% of circular weld.

The G2 axles are made in California

I've ripped off two passenger side upper brackets on stock axles. What control arms do you have? They are likely the problem.

It's not an addiction. It's a way of life.

I am running Currie CAs uppers and lowers front and back... It was a quick fix but wonder if anyone else had similar issues
