Never broke one leg out of four before. I didn't think I had that much stress on it. Unusual.

Full circle clips? Did one pop out? Are the yokes on both ends true?

Clips were there, the clip on the opposite side was mangled from the joint pushing down. If there is a problem its with the axle ears.

I have had that happen to me. What it was... the needle bearings wear out on the opposite cap so it puts all the pressure on the opposite end to carry the load and since the metal doesn't flex, it cracks off.. the thing is you caught it before you sheared it off and popped the ears together...
