Chris I do not mean to start something but I do not think you need the expensive extra axle bearings as they just mount to cheap, poorly designed strap metal cages, that are really junk.

I had a MAX IV with front cages, they would bend and break all the time, we rewelded them many times, then had to beat them back into shape, such a poor design, had they been made out of a solid piece or cast, they would be more rigid, then perhaps if you hit something, the frame would bend? However I am not sure

If your axles are moving now, just replace your worn axle bearings.

If you are running the wide tracks, I guess every bit of extra support would be nice. Standard tracks like ARGOS run fine with out them.
