Sounds like my friend, who knew this guy, that talked to my grandma, who bought a bicycle from my cousin working at sears. He had blocks on the front of his Geo Metro. One time he looked at them weird, and they fell off. THEY FELL THE ***** OFF!!!

Don't give us your "my friend" bullshnit. There is more than just the blocks that attach the axle up front, so it didn't "end up next to the rear axle". At least make a believable lie.

hahaha

say it with me...pwn3d.

I've never even heard of a front axle coming "off" due to blocks...I've heard of spring pearches and leafs snapping, stuff like that...but not anything to do w/ the blocks.

Well they didnt break, they had a split that ran about half way up the block, but I didn't lose my rear end by "breaking hard" LOL. They didn't seperate and totally obliterate themselves. They were the cheap cast ones from Autozoo, they cracked the day after I put them on. I found them cracked because I'm **** about checking anything I modify for a while to make sure its okay. After I saw they had cracked they were removed two days later and I flipped the hangers.

Heres a tid bit of info. Blocks in the Front are Illegal in all 50 States. The Added braking forces and steering forces are what make front blocks so dangerous.

What material is the top one made from? Obviously not strong enough material or thick enough to absorb much punishment without being gusseted?

ding ding ding, we have a winner. Now go look at the picture of the bronco and look at how far bent his panhard is. look at the angles compared to that of the one above. and I dont want to hear how it was stock off another vehicle, thats great but a stock waggy doenst run that panhard at those angles. by placing it in the way it is it is directly putting force into the weak areas.
