Top of the morning Fish .... like Bob said, I had my rear end apart a fewweeks back, but the Grizzis still in pieces so I haven't had a chance to ride it to see if I'll have any problems like this.
When I tore mine down I re-used the stock"C" clip inthe axle & I had to "Pound" the axle in witha dead blow hammer (I didn't have to wail on it mind you, but Ihad to give it a couple of good raps)... I couldn't get it in by handnor by trying to shove it in.
You say you change the "C" clip ... with a factory stock one ?? And this is on the axle splined end, not the inner CV joint, correct ??
Riding doubleactually makes the Grizz squat more, which would level out the axles, so I'm not sure why they would pull out then ??
Another thing, with the way the A-arms are bolted up to the frame & the rear hub bolted to them .... how does the axle come out ?? I have my Grizz up on an ATV lift, with High Lifter Springs on the shocks set at the 5th position, & the A-arms & axles are just hanging in the wind & there is no way the axle .... on my Grizz .... can move enough to come out of the rear diff .... unless I'm missing something ?? .... which Imay be.
HopefullyHammer, Hillbrigger, Timmior GwrGrizz700 will see this & have some ideas, but I honestly can't see how the axle can move far enough to come out, especially when riding double.
You don't happen to have any photo's of this do you ?? You haven't "Flipped" your rear hubs over have you ??
Try this ...when the axle is in where it's suppose to be & with the Grizz resting on the tires, grab the axle & pushing in & pulling out, see if the axle moves .... then lift the back of the Grizz up so the tires & A-arms are just hanging &try it again. Let us know if there's any movement & maybe we can try & think thru this.
