I do not think chassis flex causes it. I don't know if you have the RTR version, but I have had an ST1 pro and never had a problems with rear Axle CVD's popping out.
It could be too much Droop, too much Camber(positive)(also you never want positive camber), Rear arms warped, or flexing too much.
I am sure there is something else someone may chime in here with a suggestion.

Here is a TTR ST-1 Topic on RC Universe...

Get a longer dogbone, even if its for another kit.

Or set your max droop such that the dogbone crosspin isn't at the edge of the drive cup.
