Never run stud u-joint straps they are crap.

U-bolts are far superior... just make sure you mod the yoke right.

HOWEVER... if your u-joint is fitting properly they serve almost no function, and see almost 0 force.

I think you might have a seccondary issue... either excessive driveline angle, a wallowed out yoke, or a malformed u-joint. As torque related breakage should be in the joint or the shaft tubing.
