As pointed out before Isuzu do not have the market cornered on broken cv's, all the Ute's do it, Ford is actually worse, the only one I haven't heard much about is the Dak Dak.


Have to disagree Danno, at least around here , got mates with every other 4x4 , never experienced breakages as easy as these things , the more I look into it the more I'm finding .

If you were to look at percentages of the blokes I know personally and the others I meet in the Highcountry
This model Isuzu is a very low % , but the amount of broken CV's is the most I have ever heard of
It's 100% more than I have broken myself .

I invite anyone to come and do a trip with us and see for yourselves out country and tracks are the best in Oz .

This is my left CV when on full left lock , its jacked up , wheel would be at full droop and turned so the back steering stop is in contact , normal driving and turning the rear stops do not make contact , the right front limits the left lock , left front limits right lock ,

But the rear stop is only a bee's dick from touching , so lets say the right wheel is on a bit of a bump , left wheel drops into hole , forces that wheel back just a bit , crunch there goes another CV

What do you blokes think of that CV angle .

With both wheels on the ground it wont look that bad , that's the extreme , but I think it will break before it gets to that angle anyway .
If you start the car and turn to full lock it will , spring back a bit , you really need someone to hold it on full lock with the motor running .

So What's the verdict on you bolt on stops ? Have you given them a good test yet ? How far out from the original stops do they have to protrude without not having a B double turning circle. This is one of the worst front suspension setups that wrecks a great vehicle.
Keep up the good work.

It was about 6mm , I think , it didn't make much difference to the turning radius .
I didn't break anymore CV's after the second one and fitting the stop but I was really careful turning when in 4WD , I did a lot of 3point turns where I didn't have to .
Because of the risk of the inner guards cracking and having to worry about the CV's , I no longer own a Isuzu .
