I second the Thuren. I haven't tried the Carli so don't have it to compare to, but I've had my Thuren for over a year and zero issues with it. Death wobble was gone when I added it, and has never returned. Very well built pieces of metal.

I have all Thuren stuff. Hit a wash out hard enough to bend the axle housing and crack the pumpkin. All Thurens part were not harmed. His axle truss is going on the new one.

I only do what the majority of the 4 voices in my head tell me to. In most cases, I ignore two of them because one doesn't speak English, and I suspect the other is talking to someone else.
