Rear axle...?

Help...

I have an 07 Rhino with the 6+LSR long travel kit with stock axles. I keep snapping the rear axles, I've gone through 3 rear axles in 18 months (2 on the left rear and 1 on the right rear). I'm not an extreme rider? Any ideas's on why this keeps happening? It's an expensive fix each time it snaps - thx!!

Maybe the length of the axles are wrong I would contact lsr and see what they have to say about your problem. If they can't do anything, I would with the 300m material and talk to jose at summer bros he knows his shti and is willing to help get u what u will need for a good price. Might just b my .02. But that's where I would start

What kind of axle do they use ? 20 axles in one year... That is a lot your rhino must have some crazy power to brake that many or there is a problem with the kit ?

Always replace both axles when you break one.

IMO the problem is that the LSR Axles can not handle the droop angle as well as some of the other axles out there. Your rear shocks may be just a little too long and allow too much droop. You can have a stop added to your shocks or upgrade the rear axles only.

I have the MTS Kit and I had the same issue. I broke quite a few rear axles. Then I upgrade to Gorillas on the rear only and havent had an issue since. I later found out that Billstein had a few batches of shocks that went out just slightly out of tolerance. It wasnt much but it was enough to make an issue. I am not sure if that was my issue or not..... but the Gorillas handle the angle better.
