CV Axle

Hey everyone...next time you Goat is up on a rack..you might just want to check your CV axle boots. Had mine up when the exhaust was redone a week ago and the welder noticed that I was leaking grease all over the place.

Took it to dealer and my boot is torn up. They got a new axle on order. I got 6600 miles on her.

Just figured I'd let yall know.

With that kind of power you should replace the drive shaft, cv shafts and the stub axels, check this link for more information;

I had the BMR driveshaft but had waaaayyyy to much vibration atfer 120mph with my automatic goat. It was real nasty. I want to know if anyone making big power has broken the cv axles. Or any particular part in their drivetrain. The tranny will be built.

Here are a couple of threads from Steve (gtodealer) I believe he was 500+ rwhp.
