.......Spindle snap = Flex!

So, this has been a while ago. I've been extremely busy recently starting new things in life but I figured I'd give ya'll an update. This is what happened after me and my girlfriend had been driving for half an hour and just pulled into the parking lot.......Not cool at all........ . If the pictures aren't there immediately give them some time, photobucket's being slow for me.

You do any offroading with them? Mines a pavement pounder so hopefully mine will last. Does fabtech warranty them when this happens?

I wonder if it has to do with bearing tension and heat from the bearings.
