When I got to the top headed right, sticking to the edge and found one of the Arachnae on his own, killed him and couldn't believe my luck when I saw the carapace, very happy though!!

Just got mine off a crawler. About 20 kills of spiders and crawlers in total I think.

This actually drops off of a Crystalline crawler not spider. Good luck

this is seems to be the bottleneck item for this quest, the rest of the items seem to be rather common drops, but I havent spent a whole lot of time xping in most foz torment or tower ither, so I could just be blowing smoke out my ***

Yeah you kinda are, no offense meant. This item is rare but its in a very common experience zone. Very very very few people experience in torment where there are spider traps, making that almost a raid only drop.
Also the sol ro part requires a lot of flagging. This is one of the easier parts of the 2nd quest.

Well yes and no. You points about the Sol Ro flag and Torment traps are valid. However on the other side of the coin the drop rates of the Strands and of the Powersource are much higher than that of the carapace.

So really the way to proceed with this quest probably depends on your flag status. If you have no flags or few flags but are high enough to get into Valor then work on this piece first. The rest of the drops will come relatively easily once you progress into the appropriate zones.

strands drop 90% of the time from trap spiders
and the first trap isn't hard to reach, get a pac'er to split the pair at first 4way and any good puller can pull singles to group all day long. First trap is like 100 feet straight through 4way. I hunted torment for xp from 56-63 with guild groups on Beahr
