Lift kit issue

I have a 18 HL 4 seater which I got with the super att 10 inch lift on it. I have been having issues like crazy with it. My question is from an axel and drive train what would you recommend I do to prevent any issues? I broke 2 axels in small mud, the axels are At huge angle down.

Sorry if in wrong place.

Re: Lift kit issue

There are lots of things you can do to preserve the life of your axles with a big lift and big tires. The culprit is always the big heavy tires. To protect your axles and axle angle you can drop the lift down a notch or two. Adding limit straps will definitely help with a big lift. Upgrading your axles to 2.0's or X300's will let you get wild without worrying too much. Lastly....portals can be a life saver for your axles and drive train when running a big lift and big tires. They absorb a ton of stress and help turn the big tires so your axles aren't doing all the work.

Re: Lift kit issue

I have the 2.0s already. The place I bought the rzr from did a few odd install issues which hav been fixed as well. I destroyed 2 2.0s this weekend and getting them replaced via your warranty. The axels have been great on ,y 2 seater with the 3 inch lift. I m going to compress the springs down as well. The axels were the extended in the lift kit sold so I am hoping once it goes down some will not have issues. Just wondering anything else I should try. The portals would be next if I have issues, but it is difficult for my wife to get in at current height.
Does the axel angle have an impact and could I do something there as well?

Lol!!! This is becoming the norm with bigger and bigger tires, portals, and lifts. I've mentioned branding our own SuperATV Pole Vault pole or drop ladder.
Those axles can take a pretty good angle. I'd say most of the problems come from the suspension drop with big aggressive tires. That's a lot of spinning mass, so dropping a big spinning tire and catching traction puts a ton of stress on the whole drive line. Those portals are going to be a game changer for your suspension when you decide to go that direction. The limit straps and/or dropping the shock bracket down a notch or two will also help. The shock bracket is a 10 minute job, and you can find some super cheap limit straps online. And...don't be afraid to use your winch if you're way deep in a nasty mud hole. There's no shame in winching out.

Re: Lift kit issue

Yeah, running 37 bkt tires on it. The mud that caused it was nothing, which is why I was asking.

I am 64 and have to stretch to get in. We have a step stool and a cooler my wife stands on to get in. A drop ladder would be good, with rigid length.
