In my experiance, they dont pop out they snap. With a 2 in lift and 30's you might want some Gorilla axels there much stronger.

With or without the lift, you'll likely snap those stock axles running 30's. Buy Gorilla axles and that'll help your cause. Stock axles are good, but unless you wanna be a sally on the gas (and who of us would want to do that??) with those 30's, you're gonna run into issues. :(

I just bought a highlifter 2" lift from one of the members on here modn :thumbsup: . Great guy. I have read the same thing that it will be hard on the axles because you are increasing the angle on the cv's and also the front left axle will pull out of the diff. The gorilla axles are longer so they don't pull out of the diff and will take the abuse better.

welcome call to ArcticChat.com!! Like the others have said, if you're going with tires that size you might as well plan on upgrading the axles at the same time! :thumbsup:

Look for the ride in that ATV Rides and REports section. We're planning a ride the first weekend in June up in Forbes, MN. You should come.
