Both axles popping out of front diff?

I was out riding the other day when I notice my drivers front wheel, at about 5mph, kept locking up and sliding on the small rocks I was on so I got out and grabbed the inboard, diff end, and it moved back and forth like a broken shaft but not just that side, its pass side too. I thought they were broke till I got home, tore it apart and when checking the shaft off, they feel fine but they were both still held in by the clip, so I had to pull hard a few times to take it out so why all the play, Just doesn't make any sense to me, could someone please tell me if your shafts have ever popped out or SEEM to have popped out or seem broke but checking off the machine they feel fine. I dont know......

Re: Both axles popping out of front diff?

I have had a similar problem. I took the shaft out, cleaned the diff out really good and put a little new grease inside. Took the shaft clip and expanded it slightly and fixed it that way. You can also replace that clip. Other times I just had to get a new shaft because they advertise more angle without binding. Extreme cases could be fixed with limiting straps I suppose. Hope this helps

Thanks, I will give it a good cleaning and regrease it a little bit and see what happens, maybe try to get new clips on the ends or just put the new shafts in and keep the old ons as spares?

Check the inboard spline to see if there is any sign of wearing, the worn out spline could lead to play in the inboard joint.

I put both brand new axles in and still does it, could I possibly need a new hub because those splines are worn out? Or just SEND IT the way it is?

Re: Both axles popping out of front diff?

So it is still popping out of the diff and locking up the wheel?

Not sure yet, havent been out. Found that it needs a new wheel bearing on the drivers wheel and I think that it is because of it being bad, it would lock it up and release it with a curtain speed.

Re: Both axles popping out of front diff?

I think they just have a excessive amount of play in them. Mine still does. I just go on with it. At least you found out why your tire was locking up.

splines in the hub are probably shot.
