You know those are the teves caliper mounts right? They are know for warping, the later akebono mounts are a better design.

I would also highley recommed boxing in the passenger upper control arm mount and adding in mini skids to the axle you are building up

And another note, It has been pointed out allready but you CAN NOT run without a stubshaft, just want everyone to be clear. The hub failed becasue there was no stub shaft in there to support the bearing.
