^Is that because Birfields are somehow weaker when operating in reverse? Most of the Birfield failures I've heard of were when someone was reversing hard. A Toyota steering axle in the rear would run the Birfs in reverse.

Birfields do not care what direction they spin. The problem with reverse popping them is because you are typically in a hole, and bound up. Birfs are weakest when the wheel is turned. So, backing up you have turned wheels, lower gearing, and all of the weight on the front end. Kablue..
