  If all thats true, then I guess all those "HOT RODS" that jacked up their 
rearends with over-sized shackles or air shocks, should have blown up or fell 
apart by now. I can't imagine that there are very many cars, or trucks with 
the engine level with the ground. If you drive over a curb, does the drive 
shaft fall out ? Just a thought.
