This is the first bad review I have posted in a very, very long time and my first bad review for anything from RM. I purchased this kit and an additional replacement boot as a "spare". I read the instructions in full and watched the video, twice. The first boot ripped about an inch from the small end back as it made it over the final curve on the cone. Being frustrated I grabbed my "spare" and this time used rubber spray lube in addition to the tube of lube they give you. Again the second one ripped, this time about 2 inches long. Being horribly frustrated on a Sunday afternoon I decided to walk away from it. I'm so glad it was in my garage and not on a trail or at the camper one weekend. This morning (Monday) I went to the Polaris dealer in town and purchased the OEM boot, I was surprised how far thicker the boot was on the OEM, besides fitting perfectly. From this point on only OEM for me. NO "All Balls" products for me ever.Read All Reviews

I had a prior version that didn't have the steel insert on the splines. After 4 or so years of service the splines failed. I read they revised them with steel splines (could be alloy for all I know) so I went ahead and ordered them again. They've been on for an entire season and show no wear so I can confidently say...order them and you will be happy. :)Read All Reviews
Is it time to replace your UTV’s axles? Are your CV joints worn out? Do you need new rear axle bearings? Welcome to Rocky Mountain ATV/MC’s UTV axles page. We’ll get you what you’re looking for.
UTVs – especially sport and recreational UTVs – put a lot of strain on the axles. Different types of terrain cause varying amounts of strain. For example, heavy mud can put a lot of stress on the axles while they’re turning. And riding on rocky terrain can sometimes result in sudden impact that the axle simply can’t handle.
For the most part, axles are pretty well built for the task, but they can wear out and break (particularly at the CV joints). On some machines, the axles themselves may even bend slightly if they take too much abuse. We carry excellent aftermarket products that will replace OEM axles, getting you back out riding again.
The CV boots protect the mechanical components of the joints as they move. The boots keep dirt out and the grease in. However, the rubber can wear out and create holes, leading to premature joint wear. If you notice that your CV boots have a tear, all you need to do is replace the boot itself. We have several universal boot replacement kits that are perfect for this problem, and they can save you from a much more expensive replacement down the road by properly protecting the CV joints.
Aside from axles, this page is also the starting point for other related UTV axle parts, including rear axle bearings and wheel spacers. Check out our selection now!
