I have done this on my race cars but never a street car until now, anyone else bent their purches. When I pulled my Dana
for some repairs to housing the perches were dent.

Are you talking about an axle perch that looks like the stock one? Or a different design, like on a 60s Camaro or Nova?

I've never had a problem with the stock type axle perches myself, even with slapper bars.

I have never seen a Camaro style perch destroyed, except for 1st gen Camaro when T bolts were used and in cases of wheel hop existed. Second gen Camaro fixed issue with 0ne U bolt per side. However the stock 55-57 style perch I have seen destroyed many times on them as well as Fairlanes and Torino from the 60s.
