Any one else break an axle in there Gen 2 yet? I've got about 31k on my truck and lost it in an insection. I was making a left turn and needed to get out of the insection quickly.
It seems everyone calls them something different. It was a front drivers side CV that went. I may have been a little miss https://jalopnik.com/pre-owned-kia-stingers-are-already-an-awesome-value-1838658860.Is your truck FWD or AWD? If AWD, the rears are half shafts. They are made by GKN. Is that what you broke?
With a lift, maybe not. I know my shop would void the warranty on a failed CV joint if I had a lift on my RL.I am also curious about what @CentexG2 asked, did the actual shaft break or the joint. The joint is much more of a commonality than the shaft itself; which unless there was a defect in the shaft would be incredibly difficult to do. Also at only 31k this is covered under warranty, no?
Methinks that whatever the spec, the OP found the real-world limit, if only for one critical moment.Does anyone know the min / max operating angles of the CV joints?
In my other-than-RL experience (DIY) it's quicker, easier, and more assured to just go ahead and replace the halfshaft assembly. Ya gotta pull it all anyway and in most locales it's hard to find a shop that rebuilds CV joints these days.So now, the question is this... can the CV joint be repaired or do you have to replace the entire axle assembly?
