Actually after looking at mine again last night for another thread I am partially incorrect. This will only effect the parts behind the driveshaft splines. The driveshaft is mounted to the front of the disk. So the brake chatter will only effect the rear end gears, CVs, and axle half shaft splines...still abusive and unnecessary wear.
Sunk, I cut my teeth on dirt bikes. Going downhill fast doesn't bother me and I hardly ever use my brakes unless I am trying not to hit somebody. I wouldn't go as far as to say only as a bcak up, but I would stop short of maximum braking and not lock up the rears...its easy to do since it takes a bit of pressure to lock them up any way. In 4wd squeeze away.
