. Waggy's are not an upgrade and low pinions suck in general. All this talk of "real" 44 is a joke as far as I'm concerned. After you go through the waggy and shine it up (or any other 44 for that matter), you still have the same common failure point as the 30. Everybody cries "bigger ball joints"
but how often do you see 30s blow balljoints (on 35s and smaller tires) ? I've seen more Waggy's break ball joints than I have 30s. Typical waggy failure: the ujoint goes, the driver stays in it a second too long and the balljoints go, then the wheel falls off. I've never seen that happen to a 30, have you?.
I've seen way too many friends build d44s, then realize that 44s aren't an upgrade, and build a 60. If you need durability beyond the hp30, go 9", 60, or bigger.
