Q. Will Motor Master CV rebuild kits work on aftermarket axles CV joints?
A. The Motor Master CV Rebuild Kits are designed for repair of your stock or OE axles! They will not always work on aftermarket joints. If you have an aftermarket axle or feel the CV joints are not original equipment we can still help. You should contact us with the details of the cage or inner race you are trying to fix. If you supply us with the measurements that we list out in the Cage or Inner Race sections of the website we might just have some parts that work for you.
Q. Whats The Difference Between A Half-Shaft And Complete Axle?
A. Please be sure to review the product details on the items you are ordering. Since all of the parts manufacturers do not use standardized naming conventions you should look at the comparison sheet here to ensure you have a successful shopping experience.
Q. Minotaur vs. Standard Axles
A. The revolutionay design of the slip spine that is literally in the middle of the Minotaur Axle sets this axle apart from standard axles.

The addition of the slip spline that allows the Minotaur Axle to compress and extend 2", accomodate suspension travel, the long travel especially benefites lifted vehicles as it helps to prevent disengagement of the inner CV joint from the transaxle when the suspension is at full droop. These features alone make standard Minotaur Axles ideal for UTVs & ATVs with lift kits up to 3". Minotaur Axles are available for a variety of UTV & ATV models.
