OK? How does this happen? The Drive shaft on passenger side has popped out the front Diff.

The A arm is not broken. Did I loose the CV joint?

I can't see all that clear but the clip looks like it's still there. Is your boot torn? If not just pop the shaft back on and see if it stays. If not then You'll have to see where the damage is. Axel or diff.

Looks like the boot is torn (effident from grease). Diff seems to still be bolted in place. Other shaft still looks good. I'll take it apart later today for a full inspection.

I am removing and replacing shaft assembly. ($180)

Do you know if they make rebuild kits to rebuild. IS that possible? I was thinking about rebuilding and saving for a spare.

Still can't figure out how it could pop out like that.

Normally they pop out when your machine is lifted and your doing extreme angles. Possible your cv binded up and pop. I've never been a big fan of rebuilding cv's.

Rebuild prices sound like a waste of time then. Ill just hide it from my son for awhile as he is a scrapper. Lol.

Oh, and I hope that's all it is. I had it up in the air to check brakes a few weeks ago. Maybe it happened then???

The clip is still there just not in the groove. From the pic it looks as tho the clip was never installed correctly on the shaft in the groove and that's why it came out of the diff. Look at the splines on the shaft that are clean the axle was only in the diff that far. I don't think that was far enough.

I got it off. I think both of you are.correct. It either popped off when I was on the jack last time or it never was inserted correctly. When it popped off it damaged the cv boot. Anyone know how to replace it?

No real damage to the diff. End of the shaft marred the outside of the diff casing.

I got the shaft off without removing A arm or steering linkage. Not sure I can put it back together without removing those.

New shaft assembly arrives Wednesday.

No you won't be able to put back on without removing your upper and lower ball joints.
If you want let me know and I'll PM you the exact procedure.

You have to remove the knuckle, but you don't need to remove the A-arms. The axle just pops right back into the diff. Look inside the diff and check your splines on the end of your axle. I never rebuilt one but I bet the hardest part is getting those straps tight on the outside of the boot and the worse part would probably be packing the boot with grease if you don't like getting greasy. LOL!! I put on rubber gloves for a lot of the grease jobs we do at work. Had I not destroyed both axles I replaced on my Cat I would have rebuilt them. I think mine were like $250 a piece. When you put it all together check your torque settings. I tore my old axles apart just to see what they looked like under the boots and how they go together. It looked like it would be easy to rebuild one, but again I haven't had to do it yet.LOL!! Give me time and I'm sure I'll have to eventually. BAH HA HA HA HA!!!

Myles I Pm'd him the full directions he should be good to go. And for putting those boots on Your right.. I hate doing those so bad I won't even try anymore. And he will have to loosen and remove the upper ball joint to get enough room to get the shaft back into the carrier bearing without damageing it. And always remember to use anti seize on the splines. Helps the next time YOUR removing... LOL

Now I know how I pulled a axle apart when removing it from the diff and had to use a blind bearing puller to get the other half of the shaft out of the diff LOL!! I need to start using anti seize. LOL!! Gary I'm getting some.

Gary thanks for info. New axle delivery Tuesday.

Axle removed only needs a boot. Going to check around and see what it will cost to repair.

FYI-dealer wants $78 to replace the boot.

I found the "kit" on line for $20. Includes Grease, clamps and boot.

Just need pliers for the clamp. Advance auto sells them.

Instructions on how to replace boot? In Maintenance manual.

I'll let you know if I'm successful or not.
