2011 sportsman FRONT AXLE SEAL PROBLEMS
2011 SPORTSMAN 550 TOURING.
i developed a leak in the seal that goes around the front axle part that stabs into the differential. had to order a 50$ dollar "kit" for the entire differential to get new seals but fine, did that, while i was doing this i decided to upgrade my front axles and i ordered the all balls extreme duty 8 front axles from rocky mountain atv.
switched out seals, put a little lube on them for easier slide in, and put back together. it was ok for a while,,, a few weeks, no it is leaking like a sieve.
once again ordered new seals for f$king 50 bucks but i am beginning to wonder if i should go back to the original front axles, nothing wrong with them and i a very conservative rider, maybe the new axles were just not in spec with the seals.
