I had been wondering the same thing. I thought I saw a post back on FB a while ago where WT said they had a meeting with a big name manufacturing company and they were going to work on a solution that’s been in the works for a couple years. I don’t think he mentioned specifically the thrust bearing, etc. but it sure seemed that is what was being implied.
I know one guy's dad that has a DD LS boat, didn't get into specifics, but he says it runs with his 0540 step. Maybe there's just not enough demand, the price for the "solution" is just more money that can be spent buying a gearbox.
