How many X-Factors?

I'm going to add an X-Factor cross brace to my equalizer hanger brackets and my rear spring hanger brackets. Hoy many of you boys and girls out there have added one to the front spring hanger brackets? Seems like all pictures of broken hangers I've seen are the rear hanger brackets. Don't recall seeing a front one break. I guess its possible that by strengthening the equalizer bracket and the rear bracket some of the stress could be shifted to the front bracket. So may be prudent to go ahead and add on there.

I added them to the equalizer and rear brackets but the front x factor was not available at the time (mine needed to be the drop type because of the galley gray drain pipe being in the way). About 3 months later I added the front when it was available. They now put the angle braces inside the spring hangers from the factory…and they put them on all of the hangers.
