Well pulled the front diff apart today and the drivers side CV is not there any more lol . It has detonated big time , we pulled apart the passanger side to find 3 major cracks , so it was ready to detenate also . I rang up A&F drive shafts who replaced them 2 years ago , they took one look and replaced them under warranty, so happy with that . Problem is , its destroid the axle now , so will see what they can do about that tomorrow . aparantly they had problems with a batch of CV's ( hmmmm ) reconds all sorted now .

I was happy that they said to replaice them withought a struggle , he took one look and said yep ,,, on us this one ,,,, got to be happy with that service

Eric, am glad you don't have to wear all of the cost of the other night, but it seems like your mates will crawl out too.

Take care mate.........

Evening Eric

Mate! I have been watching with avid interest on the forum the 'trials and tribulations' of Eric over the past year or so. (Most impressive if I may say so.

Tonight I checked out your rig specs and for the life of me I can't figure out how a guy/member with such a rig has come upon this misfortune.

Please enlighten me re this dilema.

Sorry Ken , I dont understand the question, You dont understand how I broke it ? or why i was there doing the recovery ?

CV broke due to been a infirior shaft that I replaced 2 years ago , and a worn bush did contribute . I have now replaiced both with CV's from Don Kyat + 2 new axles and new bushes , so all is new again

We always break CV's on our race truck, but thats because of how we drive it!
Its always the shortest that breaks first, as there's not enough twist in the axle to take up the load, compared to the long side.
GU patrol axle and CV's arent cheap.

Good luck
