The real problem is in the cage design inside the cv joint itself. They tried to tell me my steering was causing the problem but, I built a brand new dana 44 that had never been tampered with. I took the liberty myself to disassemble the cv and found the cage to be the problem. Oh, did I mention they warrantied 2 sets and the third set Sean sent it took him 3 months to send. I had three sets of rcv axles in my 44 in a year.
Do a search on here and you'll find that there has been several people have problems with clicking on the rcv's.
i am sure everyone has a different story to tell and i am sure yours is mostly true but here is mine.
i too had the clicking at full or close to full turn. stuff wears out and stuff breaks, its just how long before they do. i called up the company and talked to greg at first. long story shortened i sent in my shafts the next week on monday. they recieved them on a wed. they fixed them with new cv joints and sent me two new boots and a tube of grease. i got them on thursday (the next day).
i called told them exactly what the issue was and i run a 38 X 14.50 on spyderlocks. they don't care about the abuse you put them through they just fix it. i ran mine for about a year and half before they clicked. i belive they would have lasted a lot longer but i didn't like the click. my shafts are still perfect. i spent a woping 30 bucks to ship to them and i ended up with a nearly (same shaft is all) new 1k set of axles again.
i have twisted one spline in the rear and bent 4 flanges with aftermarket shafts. the front has made it through all of those and would still be going strong if i could of lived with the click.
i personally can't think of a better manufacture right now. i am so impressed with rcv and kraig, greg and john that i want to give Rcv props. i called them on friday and told them how happy i was with them. thats what a company that charges a premium for some good stuff should do. you can slam me all you want and tell me i work for them but i don't. i am not to active on here, but this company deserves some credit.
if you have a issue be honest (they don't care how it happend) and call them up to send it in. if your a better man then me you can even have them send you a rebuild kit (for free). great product and a company that cares. way to go RCV!!!
