Rhino axles

Hello, new to the forum here.
Just wanted to get some advice on axle purchases.
What's the best axles for price?
I have a 2007 rhino 700 with what I believe is a +6 fabtech long arm kit.
I have already broken two summers brother axles and one cv and I really dont ride it very hard most days. Usually just riding around my 3 and 4 year olds.
I've looked at gorilla axles but have read people that have had different kinds of luck with them. Any help with this will be much appreciated and if possible send me links to where I can purchase them. Thank you

Rhino axles

I think before u bought more axles u might want to investigate whats causing them to break. Are the a-arm bushings shot? Where ur a-arms mount to the frame, are the holes elongated. Stuff like that. I have summer brothers axles and never had a problem and i ride hard. Somethings not right.
Welcome the site from Tuscola tx.
Are ur axles hitting the frame at all, and what size tires are u running,and whats ur wheel offset. Lets see some pics

If itís your passenger rear, and the axle is breaking at the splines on the inner cv chances are itís hitting the frame and snapping the axle. The rear passenger is the longest axle on the rhino and comes very close to the frame at full droop.

Easy cure would be to run limiting straps

Jack the front and rear end of the machine off the ground and see what kind of angles youíre getting

Thanks for your input, as far as the bushings and stuff being worn out I dont believe that's the case. The rhino itself has only about 250 hours or 3500 miles. I'll double check them when I get home in a couple weeks though. I work in tx and live in ky. I think the tires are 27s, I know for sure the wheels are 14s. To give summer bros some credit I think one axle broke due to my wife driving the kids around with one axle already broken.

Rhino axles

The 09 700 i bought used a couple years ago with sdr long travel had 1,600 miles and i believe 900hrs on it and the a-arm bushings were toast. Arms had all kind of slop in them when i had it on jackstands, thats why i mentioned it. That is an agressive tread pattern on the tires but im sure u have mud where you r at. Dont see tires like that here is dry a$$ west texas.
Good looking rhino
On my old 450 i had to notch out the frame where the pass rear axle would hit the frame at full droop but it had a 3Ē lift on it

Yea that's one down falls of the long arms, I can hit one little mud puddle and the whole things covered haha. The tires come with it and a set of 25s they used for road riding, once there wore out I'll go with something a little less aggressive. I'll check out the bushings and travel for sure tho when I get home
