    first repair job

    Broke something on the ranger this weekend. I haven't taken it apart yet to see what's actually broken. There's a popping noise when it's moving and turning to the right. This is the rear passenger side by the way. I've sort of been looking forward to breaking some common things so that I can beef things up some. Like I said, haven't torn into it yet, but I was curious if you guys knew what I was in store for, and if anyone has any recommendations for a site to buy parts from. Sorry for the sideways picture, I can't figure out how to rotate it apparently.

    Cv axle boot is ripped, how long has it been ripped like that?
    Once it tosses out all of its grease its only a matter of time before it goes snap

    That's definitely where the popping is coming from, and the rip and the popping started at the same time. Hopefully I'll get time to tear into it this evening.

    Definitely not buying used parts. I want to replace anything that breaks with beefier components when possible.

    A pair of axles; I figured I'd change them both if I'm upgrading the size.

    I apologize if I'm asking ignorant questions, I'm new to working on things with 4 wheels. The Rhino 2.0 axles have the joints on both ends (from the service manual they're called CV Joint and Plunging Joint)- my question is, are those joints superior to OEM in some way? Or is the Rhino 2.0's only benefit over OEM the diameter of the actual axle?
