...that is the question.

So what does the Ga. mob say about trussing the factory Toy SFA with this type??

Cost is not the question here. True effectiveness is.
Does it really do anything?
Is it worth running the risk of warping the housing when welding?
Do the housings really bend there when they DO bend (according to Brian E. they don't)

The plan is to put the creeper gussets on for sure.

I've never worried with a truss on mine and it gets full assault jumping rocks beat on with no issues. However my junk is much lighter and im sure that plays a part in it

I sleep better at night knowing I have one on my axle. I'm sure it helps, but it definitely doesn't make your axle bulletproof.

James, could you tell if it was bent toward the ends or not?

Not sure just that had to do some work to to get the birf's back in.

Which side? Even new with my housing the short side is a pain in the ass to get in/out
