You might want to retake that. The camera distorted it some.

I had them, just finally installed the left one and replaced the bent right one. Factory shafts can take a lot of abuse. Just have to keep an eye on them.

Well, Danny, I glad you finally replaced those stock shafts. I had to take Dramamine if I was following you. You're right, the stock shafts do take a lot of abuse, you've proved it time and again
