Before you replace the clip...pull off your shock and check to make sure you axle is even long enough......When it is flat it is at its longest point

Call Gorilla directly and order a few clips, cheap and you will have them within a week. I would recommend buying a slide hammer w/ the 3 claw attachment for future removal of the axle/CV from the diff. I also chamfer the side of the clip that goes into the diff... makes it a little easier to go in.



NIIICE!

Thanks, I have replaced the cilp before. I will try this again. Sounds like what I need to do. The axle is a new one, crazy but the last one I had broke.

Thanks for the info. When I had to replace this axle form Gorilla due to breaking the first one I got. I was sent the wrong one and it was to long. So I think I have the correct axle, I had to make sure it was long enough when I reordered it. The cilp might be the problem.

I found that you can't even assemble it if the hub is upsidedown, so there should be no worries there. If a new clip doesn't do it, pull the axle and check/doublecheck the length! Gorilla's quality control is crap. I fought their axles for so long. Greg at LSR and I measured ours, between several sets we found nearly all to be anywhere from 1/8 to almost 3/4" too short!

TOAST NO MORE

Longest downtime record has been set!
