I was putting more balance beads in my 37's and gave the drive train a once over. I learned that ALL4 ball joints were bad AND I have a bent axle!!!

Sorry to hear that!

From all the articles I've read, it seems to be a pretty common problem with the JK's.  That's probably due to the fact that it's so easy to fit larger tires like those 37's, that it puts a lot of stress on the front end.

What are your plans now?
