    I'd be ready to expect the worst with it IMO.
    You could have a free mod, turn your 10bolt into a 3 1/4bolt. lol. OK, im done.

    well the entire rearend has been rebuilt, and has GM 3.73's, moser axles, and a MAC girdle. I know the 10 bolt sucks and ive done all i can do to make it last longer. the 12 bolt is out of my price range. But I have heard of some 10 bolts that have held up under alot more than my TA is capeble of.

    You are correct. Some people are luckier than others. I have heard of stock power cars breaking 10-bolts. I have also heard of cars pushing 450-500whp with a 10-bolt and it has still held up. IMO, it is just a matter of time. Hopefully your time will came later rather than sooner.

    Why would I bend the pushrods? I know my buddy bent his shift forks a few years back. I dont know why these cars are having the shifting issue on WOT while going to third.
    i was having the same problem with my ws6. it only has 20,000 miles on it. so i bought a pro 5.0 shifter, and when i went to put it in i found the the bolts that hold the shifter to the tower were ready to fall out and was all sloppy.

    i put the new shifter in anyway. it does shift better and looks factory stock.

    alot of it is how you treat it and launch it--- if you take all the slap out of the rear it takes the "hit" out.... when guys slap their diff hard that's where they break alot.
