I would think its just from use and a little pounding the rear wheel are putting on the upper part.. I think if the axle was tighter or toward the rear it may crack the rear upper, instead of the front upper..I would think they may thicken that up but.??

:eek: I tightened my axle nut up with a 3/4" drive ratchet and socket. A little bit overkill but thats the tools I had. I tightened it up pretty good too, like probably around 80 to 90 ft. lbs ( just a guess ). It makes sense that if you jam the nut down good and tight a lot of trouble could be avoided I.M.H.O.
