Flipped The Rhino...A Video and question on aftermath problems

Hey guys long time no see lol...Well a buddy and I happened to flip our Rhino a few weeks ago and got it on video...take a look


Soooo if you didn't notice we happend to break the front drivers side outer CV joint. I took the Rhino over to Brian at Fusion Offroad and he called me with some bad news today. He said he got the whole CV fixed and as he took it on the pavement to see how it road he gave it gas and the steering wheel nearly jerked out of his hands. He was in 2wd the whole time and after a few more runs he said that he thinks there's something up with the front differential and he wants to take it out to the dirt this coming monday to find a nice soft spot to see what wheels spin. He never tried to put it in 4wd cause he didn't want to do any more damage if something was up. My question to you guys was do you have any idea what might be causing it? I'm betting that we either threw the spider gears off a few teeth and that its grabbing the drivers side cv every rotation =/ I have a feeling this fix is going to get VEERRRYYYY expensive but I'm hoping for the best *knock on wood*

Thanks for looking guys, and please Chime in if you have any ideas!

Tell Austin his driving skills suck butt - he definitely took that trail to a "new level" alright.

Hope you get it worked out, did you check the inside CV too?

Are the front spindles stock and is the wheels still pointing forward straight? I would guess bent spindle and the alignment is whacked now.

Nope HCR beffy as phuck spindles, no damage whatsoever to anything that I could see besides the CV and a scrape on the rollbar

I doubt its in the front diff. The way those things work is the side with the least restriction is going to drive and the other will not unless th diff is in locked mode.

Broken rear cv or axle will make it pull like a mad dog when on pavement with your foot in it.
