Axle Popping Out From Negative Camber?

I have a 2006 660 Special Edition and the left rear axle is constantly popping out. There is also a significant negative camber but *only* on the back wheels. (They are toed in at the top.) Could this be the cause of the axle popout issue? If so, what do I need to replace to restore a "normal" wheel camber? I've replaced that axle before with a "Bravex" off Amazon, but it hasn't helped.

Seems like this is not uncommon but I'm not sure what to replace in my case. Thanks everyone!

How it’s pictured is how it was when I bought it. 😕 I’m not looking at it at the moment, but how would I tell?

Ok thank you. Do you think the camber looks correct? I have no frame of reference but it seems really saggy and I’m not sure if something is getting sloppy ... trying to get it reliable for the AZ UTV Rally in a few weeks!

I think the problem is your garage floor is too clean causing the picture to be distorted?

LOL .. hey a clean floor makes at least +10HP Seriously though it makes working on anything much more enjoyable.

New wheel bearings came in today so I'm going to start ripping it apart tonight. There is also a whining sound that I think is some unhappy bearings crunching around and creating slop. That's the theory, at least.

Okay that does it - time to sell the Rhino when I can't remember a simple thing like that!

Check this out .. been ripping it apart to replace all the rear wheel and knuckle bearings, and the right rear cup assembly was a glitter party. Literally shards of CV fell out with the bearings all clumped in a ball hanging on for dear life, lol. The boot was the only thing holding it together. Got the new axle, wheel bearings, knuckle bushings all replaced on the right rear, soaked everything in solvent prior to reassembly and repainted. Feeling much more solid now and I tell it feels less sloppy. Hope finishing up the left will finally solve the axle drop out. Before/After attached.

It would be helpful if there were more details about your Rhino, like does it have a lift kit? What is shape of your control arm bushings, is there a lot of movement? How many times have you removed and reinstalled this axle? Have you tried replacing the circlip ring on the end of the axle (or whatever it is called)? Check manual but believe it is recommended to replace this spring ring every time and when it gets worn it will not hold the axle in very well.

Sorry to hijack the post but it appears you have the stock Yamaha a-arm bushings in this rig. If so, I HIGHLY recommend getting in touch with Tinken here on this forum and see if he has any of his aftermarket a-arm bushings left. I installed them and they are the cat's meow. I too had a slight inward camber on my left rear and those bushings completely eliminated the camber.

Did you replace the OEM axle ?
Did you compare the new axle length to OEM ?
I had something similar happen to me recently and I discovered the TUSK axle (OEM replacement) from Rocky Mtn. ATV was 3/4" shorter than oem.
When mine popped it seperated at the cv joint and thankfully I was close to camp when it did.

RMATV has since removed their Tusk brand (right side) axle from the website

How was this even working ? without sounding like a metal recycling plant ?
