stronger CV joints

Dear D-90 readers,

I'am running a D-90 of year 2003.
On this car I'am having ARB locking diff's in front & rear, but together with the 35" Simex tyres, the standard setup of the axles was not enough.
So, I changed the half shafts for stronger ones of ashcroft and installed CV joints of Great Basin Rovers.
But, even the stronger CV joint broke under no tension.
So, I'am wondering if any of you could advice about stronger CV joints................
Wich brand, site, etc.

Thanks,
Ced

Have you thought about longfieling the CV's. I have Rover Tracks front CV's running 37" tires and so far so good. However, if I blow my CV's (which I know it'll happen) I'm having Rover Tracks make me a long field ones.

excuse me, but what thus longfieling mens ??
the Great Basins were only 1+1/2 month old.
I will check the rover tracks, but I'am afraid they are very expensive.

I sent the suffix A rangie ones.

My understanding (and this is a year or more ago) was that basically you had to send him yours as he did not have enough cores and new one are crazy $$$ compared to birfs.

Yes heat treat and a ring. There is some good discussion on the pirate4x4 achieves.

As far as cost you would have to call IIRC he was looking for $125 or so per.
