Well, just plowed some snow, and about 3 times rear left, 1 time rear right axle popped out of the joint.

I replaced the circle clips and still pops out. They are gorilla axles with stock cat c-clips. its starting to get annoying but i have it down to a 3 minute fix. just sucks...

I read somewhere that you can use orings or something..

I run the Gorilla circlips on my Gorilla axles. As many differential problems as I have I've never had an axle stuck. I don't know if it's different with the newer axles or what.

I just installed #17 o-rings from the plumbing department at lowes. 2.99 for 10. Man was it a battle to slide the axle in with one person. But I must say I dont think they are going to come out. I removed the factory c clip and just running an oring.

Alot of people on Highlifter also use the oring's.


Thanks for the help fellas!
