front drive shaft noise '08 Rhino

Have a front drive shaft noise at 6-8 mph on 2008 Rhino. When you speed up it goes away. Anybody know what the problem is?

I know the rhino front diffs come apart I would inspect it. Or maybe you have a joint going out. I run a Prowler so Im not 100% on the rhino noises LOL.

2nd place is the first loser!!

Were a whole lot faster than you think you are.

I've been told by my dealer that its normal, due to the long length of the front drive-shaft it causes a vibration noise which sounds very concerning but doesn't cause any problems from what the dealer told me. Mine does it and mine is a 2011 Rhino 700. Problem goes away once throttle is applied. Problem is a bit more noticeable in 4WD but goes away when throttle is applied too.

Check your diff fluid for alum shavings, my ring gear bolts loosened and destroyed my diff housing.

front end vibration

I have a 2009 rhino, 160 hrs, it has that vibration, in two wheel drive it's ok, when you put it in 4 wheel drive at around 10 to 15 km/h it has a heck of a vibration, it's been there since new, make sure you are greasing the two U joints on the front drive shaft. they are a bear to get at but take the time to grease them .

The other guy had a good point, lube the driveshaft, but also try changing diff fluid and pay close attn for any shavings in the fluid. I had to rebuild my front diff due to ring gear bolts backing out.

Front driveshaft

Yes Lube the front driveshaft and it will help alot. I notice my vibration gets worse over time and then when I grease it, it gets better. But yes my 08 has the same thing, its pretty normal out of the 3 rhinos we have had.
