Sounds like the nut is spinning loose

I'd say there's a loose nut behind the wheel.

Spindle is junk. Outer bearing is spinning the inner race on the spindle, only thing I know of to do that.

These things dont ha e a very pressed fot, press in bearing. So i would assume it wouldnt take much to take out a spindle.

So i was talling to a guy that races sxs in srrs style stuff. Said i his old can am he had replaced an axle with a cheaper aftermarket one and had the same issue im having. Said he went as far as tack welding the axle nut on and it ended up twisting the axle off.

Apparently there is enough play between the axle splines and hub splines to let it walk back and forth??

I would think if there was that much play it would strip the hub, try red loctite on the threads and see if that helps, if it's under warranty I'd take it back

I googled it and ive seen alot of folks having this issue but most try to remedy it by making axle nut plates and other things.

That tells me there is a problem with the cheaper aftermarket shafts.

I bought a pair of them and it was just last week so I have already submitted a return claim. So I'll see what happens there if they wont do anything about it then I will try to build an axle nut plate I guess.Image
