What's the next weak point....

If I go to bulletproof spindles on a stock Rhino suspension, what becomes the next weakest link?
Trying to decide whether I want to keep spending money on more bent spindles, or spend money on some different bent parts.

I would think it would be the steering rack.

Next weakest part after your spindles is the steering rack, I would go with a gear one rack IMO.

I've been going through this too. Busted 2 spindles last year, 2 steering linkahge and a rack. If you stay with the stock rack make sure the linkage is weak and carry spares. If you beef the stock spindle you also should consider gusseting the front frame. The beef spindle won't shatter if you have a hard hit but you'll pull the arms and buckle the rear lower mount.
