2003 Sportsman 700 Axles slip out about 3/4 of an inch then go back in. Do not pop out but will not stay tight to differential. Bought this used and originally one axle was doing it. I replaced both axles now both are the same. I have nothing to compare axle length to but both I bought were exact oem part # This is my first atv so I am sort of clueless on this situation, Any help is appreciated.

Some non-OEM axles do not come with the C-clip that holds them in and it needs to be transferred over from the old axles. Did the new axles come with clips installed? Did you clean the axle carriers out well?

Does it have a lift?

Yes they came with clips and everything is clean. You can feel them lock into place when installing. They seem to drift back out and in.
