Have any of ya'll had a shock shaft snap? I am just wondering, because last year it happend to me about 10 miles from home after a 100plus mile trip. I was just riding along and i got to a rough whoop like section in VT and i started to pick up some speed about 35-45mph, and i was like skiming over the tops of them and all of a sudden i herd something crack, so i stoped looked under my sled and saw all oil on my track(shock oil), and saw half my shalf, hanging from the i hock, so when i walked back about 100 feet i found the body only and everything else was missing(the guts). So i just ordered a new one, but i was just wondering has urs ever broke?

Never had that happen to me. I have had shock parts break before, but never the actual shaft. My rear suspension shaft is 2" diameter.
