Post a pic. I'd like to see it. And I'd just leave it. Replace axles with cobras as they break

cobra axles never heard of them. r they better than rhinos? whats best place to get them. what makes them better than rhinos I saw on their site $239 which makes them a little more expensive but same warranty. r they a little longer than stock?

If you're simply needing an aftermarket axle that provides more articulation, Rhino Axles are fine. If you're fairly hard on your machine, Cobra Axles are considered an upgrade to Rhino Axles.

I won't run rhinos simply cause their boots are garbage.

The rhino axles have upgraded the boots as of last fall...much better than the old style, however, I do not know how they compare to other aftermarket boots since the rhino's are all I have used...

Yeah the boots are even worse. They aren't soft anymore, they feel like plastic. Very rigid boots

Since you say they are worse I assume that you've ran the old and new boots and discovered that the new ones didn't last as long....or are you getting your info from your rectal database again?....

What is weird is i just inspected my boots yesterday at -2 degrees and not plastic and rigid feeling.... I think you might be exaggerating again....

Um no, I personally don't run them, 2 of my.ridimg buddies do. They were having issues with pin holes in the boots so they would send them back for replacenment. Then when they came out with that new style boot when they came.back they almost resemble the can am factory boots. Very stiff, they still flex, but are a very hard compound. They haven't had pin hole issues anymore, but the issue now is that the boot is so stiff it keeps popping off the axle joints. So don't go around trying to stir crap up throwing out assumptions.

just put on ev springs front and rear wasn't hard used a spring compressor that I used to change springs on my superduty worked fine. results r rear end height with just 2"superatv lift was 13" now with springs and lift 16 1/4", front was 12 3/4" now 14 1/4" bike has a rake down appearance on front now to get front end up more. to me utv rides better less body roll only slight more stiffer on front but back is def stiffer, rear axles definitely have a rake to them, front not bad and don't see any camber issue was hoping for more out of front springs. whatshould I do to get more lift on front?

You are pretty much at your limit. You could try stacking on another satv puck, but you'll definitly have axle issues. And watch those rear axles, with my setup and shocks cranked all the way I had 16 1/4" and this weekend I could hear my axles binding up. I softened the shocks and it's down to 15 3/4" rear and it doesn't seem to be binding anymore.

I haven't seen it done yet but I'd imagine it would make your ride so stiff you would feel like you riding a covered wagon lol. I wouldn't do it.

I have the satv lift with 2" spring spacers riding on 31" tires and have 16.25" in the front. Being you have ev springs and satv lift I wouldn't suggest more then 1" spacers, especially on stocks. I think even with rhinos you would be pushing your luck
