New pics and carnage

Well that didn't take long. Don't know why the cv shaft went but I guess it was that time. First shaft I've had go out on me. Kind of sucks since I can't get a new one until wednesday afternoon but oh well.

Sucks about the CV. Did you have those spacers on the end of the shaft that you're supposed to use with the RCD?

Well that sucks.

They're little washer type things that slide over the cv end shaft before you put it through the hub to draw them in a little bit.

Where are Matt's?

The RCD part # is 20-833765. You might be able to get them from RCD still. They keep the CV from overextending since the RCD knuckle is slightly wider than stock. Thats the reason I had those extended CV shafts on mine. I never used the spacers I had till I put them on Koyns truck this weekend.

Heres the RCD install manual where you can see the part number for the axle spacer, I'm sure its in the instructions somewhere where you're supposed to install it, but I didn't see it.

If you can't get the spacers I still have my extended CVs I could hook you up with.

skid plate is 3/16 and my truck would break before that skid plate would. I could slam it with a sledge hammer with no damage haha

Spacers? Wtf?? Maybe thats why i over extended like 4 CV shafts.

I never had spacers, idk if Krawltex didn't put them in or they didn't come in the kit. *******.


You shouldn't need a new CV shaft right away, you could put a new boot on it.

I think I read somewhere you can't use the spacers with PVH hubs or CVs because of that snap ring. If thats the case though, it was a pretty stupid design flaw on RCD's part. They obviously knew about the problem since they took the time to include the spacers in the kit.

I have those spacers. I have been using them for almost as long as I have had my superlift. I did break a CV but that was trying to pull a suburban out of a snow bank in reverse, not a good idea lol.

I don't see why you wouldn't be able to use some big washers. As long as they're .25" thick they should work fine. the spacer itself is basically a thick washer.

yeaaaa.. probably the PVH ****. but krawltex could have still given the extra pieces to me.. just like they only gave me 1 spanner wrench.

I wish there was another offroad fab shop in Austin..

So this is a problem with the Superlift too? Superlift's don't come with spacers like the RCD kit did.
