Okay, so hears the deal......

I ended up having a drivers side rear axle go out on my 19 Turbo S at 190 miles. Basically the inner CV joint failed. So coughed that up to must have been a bad one because it just slowly started making noise and then it went completely.

No big deal, ordered up two brand new Rhino 2.0 Axles and put them in the other day.

Now tonight, I run into work which is only about 3 miles from my house. All pavement and about 45 miles per hour. After getting back from work, I grab the wife and we take off for a short little ride, on pavement again, ranging from 45 to 25 mph.

I slow down in one subdivision and notice a clicking noise that is consistent with the speed. The sound is consistent and coming from the rear of the machine. I get out and check and find the passenger side axle now has a ton of in and out play ????? I then check the drivers' side and its solid and good.

So we head for home, which is only about 4 miles away. By the time I get home the clicking noise is a little worse and now the drivers side and the passenger side axles have all this in and out play!!!! So, about 12 to 14 miles on a set of Rhino axles and there doing this ?????

Am I missing something here

Little update.................

I had never run Rhino Axles before and after installing there was no in and out play at all. So.....this plays into this in a minute. After these few little runs and noticing clicking noise is obviously what drove me to checking things over.

After speaking with Super ATV and providing them some info, I have learned that the Rhino Axle does in fact have inward and outward movement, which is about 1/2" of play. So in a nut shell this is normal.....

The strange part was that these axles did not have this play immediately after install which was what threw me the curve ball, thinking something was wrong.

So in essence, I "should" be good, other then if this "clicking" noise continues, which I'll have to watch and see what happens there.

Live and learn I guess..............................
