Jacko.

Now I know everyone's thoughts on dealer mechanics.
But. I rang one before to get them to try explain why the diffs not inline with wheels.

He told me when the cars on the hoist the wheels will just hang n drop wherever n hang of the cv making it look like a bad angle.
Said once cars on the ground with the weight on it it will go back to normal

Yeah that's right , imagine this you are driving on a track , uneven ground turning on a tight full lock turn , plenty of those out there ever been on Trig Track , 12 switch back turns in , I dunno half a K maybe .

One wheel on a bit of a high spot the other in a bit of a hole , wheels turned , what's the angle on the CV now , I will tell you it's at breaking point ,

Anyway today I have been turning circles , right full lock turn = a 13 metre circle
Left full lock = a 12.6 metre circle

After a bit of home made adjustment my turning circle is 14 metres , is that enough to save the CV's , I don't know , I bloody hope so , time will tell

gmax what ya say we get together and spend a day in the bush , can I drive your Ute up Trig Track ?

Yehh you can if you feel like replacing another one lol.

I'd definitely sacrifice a little bit of turning for a cv.

I got under n looked at the diff. Cv n where the angle of it all was.

I don't think it is thr bad it bout 15-20mm but it is a ball joint they are designed to move.
Do admit though it's not ideal.

I still think a stronger cv would have to be a improvement

Well I can drop my broken CV of at Power House and you can come talk to them about modding a CV for you if ya like .

Could you measure the turning circle of your ute , see if there is difference left to right .

We did the mates new Hilux today when I was playing around , his was 13 metres right and left .

I don't know if it's unusual to have a difference one side to the other , I guess it would be .

Just checked the specs the turn radius should be 12.6 Metres . Seems my left was correct and the right at 13 metres is a little big .

I have broken 2 left CV , I wonder if the right being wider had anything to do with it .

Yehh that be good mate.

Suspension mob in qld told me today they know of ppl trailing strong ones for the max.

How exactly did you measure your turning.

I'll be doin the steering lock mod I reckon.

Ok I would still be interest in better CV's if available ,

I just drove around in circles at full lock , had a mate place a brick beside the wheel each side of the circle measured the distance between the bricks with a long tape

Had a look at the previous model Dmax , Diff is not set back like this model .

Talked to Power House he had a look and agrees that the problem , no point in making a stronger CV ,

A CV on that angle when turning in 4wd , could never be strong enough ,


Thats right Jacko the diff needs to move about 30mm forward and I reckon that would improve it out of sight and if I were to do it I would do it with a modified diff drop kit as the clearance is available to do it potentially taking care of two problems at once.

Had it on a hoist this morning and only had a quick look but the clearance appears to be there and the best way to do it would be to make a drop kit (they're stupidly simple) with modified mounting holes.... shouldn't have to though :roll:
