Hey guys. This is for all you Chevy truck 12 bolt experts out there. Do you believe that a cover such as this adds any real overall strength to a 12 bolt? From the vendor:
"Made from 356-T6 cast aluminum, these girdles incorporate a reinforced crossbar. The crossbar houses the load bolts that apply pressure to the bearing caps. This feature, along with the thick casting, prevents bearing cap deflection under severe loads. Which in turn greatly reduces or eliminates (in most cases) bearing cap fatigue and failure. "
