RCV Performance Axles

Anybody using RCV aftermarket axles? I've heard a lot of talk about them but don't know anybody using them.

If my axles or CVs break, would these completely eliminate any future similar problems?

By having stronger axles, will that cause something else to break under high stress? If so what would that be?

I doubt you will be breaking the stock axles.

Most people break them when running huge tires or when they are bouncing around trying to climb something extremely steep with the wheel turned to full lock and full throttle applied. Yes your angles are worse do to the lift but that will just destroy the boot if the ribs are touching.

Lol. If you are doing serious wheeling then get them. I don't ever think I will ever break my CVs but I stick to easy/moderate stuff. If I decide to go with the ICON extended travel coilovers I would get the RCV axles for the extra CV angles you can get with them.

Yup. The driver axleshaft is connected directly to the gears. You could pull axleshafts so you can drive off of the trail but you would have to leave the stubs in the spindles.

You can buy a lot of spares for the price of those bullet proof axles. Just something to think about.
yeah good point, and that's what I think the OP was looking for...

I know this is a really old thread but was hoping someone might be able to chime in a bit here. I'm lookin at soon rebuilding both my cv's.
Am I understanding correctly when you guys are talking about these rcv axles...Since they allow for 'extra cv angles" would I be able to crank my coilovers a bit higher than they currently are without worry?
