This is wholly, and completely...inaccurate.

4340 rears or even 300M work fantastic.

Though, something like a 5.3 with complete drivetrain can be found for relatively cheap around here.

Case 2.

I'm not sure how everyone else buys their hardware, but washers have ALWAYS been something that have made me wonder. As an engineer, loose...is bad.
