2009yamaha rhino axel issue

Hi I noticed I had a bad cv boot on my right rear axle. I ordered new and replaced it. When I went to put the axle back on the unit I can get the axle seated in the rear diff but when I go to put the hub on the outside I can only get the top bolts of the hub in once the axle is on it.I can’t get the bottom bolt in while the axle is in the hub. It seems like the shock is pushing the a arm down too far. Or something is maybe not seated right in the outer cv? Any help would be appreciated

Rhino 700 or 450? Your upright may be upside down. Post a pic or 2 if possible

Sorry it’s the 700. You mean the upright as in the hub is upside down? I’m at work so I’ll have to post pictures after.

Here is some pictures of the axel installed and the distance away from the bolt holes lining up

The axle in the pic doesnít seem ďnewĒ if thatís the axle you purchased, try cleaning the surface rust on the outer cv and also clean and lightly lube the bearings inside the hub. Remove the top bolt and evenly push on the hub. Itís should seat further then the pic shows. Also start with installing the lower bolt. Than you can use the floor jack as an aid to raise the hub to align the upper bolt.

the axle is still stock its just the cv boot on the outer side that I had to replace as it was cracked. So I did have to take it apart to put the new boot on but it seemed to go back together fine. I have also tried the bottom bolt first and a ratchet to bring it up but still doesn't line up properly. I have tapped on the hub with a hammer to try and seat it farther on the axel aswell as putting the nut on the axel and trying to tighten it but that's as far as I can get it to go each time. which picture looks like it didn't seat far enough and what could possibly stop it from seating any farther.

In the last pic in this post, the dust seal on the inside of the hub that protects the bearings doesnít seat on the taper of the axle. Look at the opposite side to see if itís any different. The other culprit could be the cv didnít make it past the retention ring on the axle shaft itself when you re assembled the axle. That should be an easy test by tugging on the outer cv to see if it lets the axle shaft loose. The outer cv shouldnít have any push or pull to it.

It looks to be the same gap on both sides. How much should you have to compress the shock to get it on? There is no play on the outer cv joint

Not much at all. I really canít remember fighting to get the hub on and Iíve installed hundreds of axles. Do you have a lift kit?

No it’s all stock. I took the axel off and took the inner boot off and re greased it. Lubed everything up and was able to get the hub on after ratcheting up the lower arm. Still seems weird that I had to ratchet up the shock to get it on but it’s installed. Once I get it on the ground I’ll see how everything fits.

Spin the part that the a-arms attach to 180* that may be the problem.

the caliper only mounts one way on the hub so i dont think it would mount the other way. I also never removed anything off of the hub so it should only mount on the one way i would think.

To me it looks like your inner CV Joint is not together correctly. The boot looks too expanded like the joint slipped out while you were working on it. Feel the boot and see if it feels out of place.

I didn’t ever take it apart but I did take the cv boot off and re greased it and everything went together semi easy
