Default Rear End

Well, my son went riding the other day and this happened. Brand new axile too! I guess the metal ant what it use to be.
I need a good Ezgo factory axile to make it work and not a cheap aftermarket one like this. I can't beleive it broke into like this.

OH CRAP! Dang Andy, looks like china struck again. If anything the one axle should have snapped instead of twisting. Where did you get the axle?

Man, that's is one crappy axle, OR a major defect in manufacturing, but I'm going with crappy axle. OK, gut check time: where did you buy it?

I bought it at the beach from Grahams Golf carts. Going to call them Monday and see if they will replace it. I think it's just cheap metal.
May even be a flaw in it also by the way it has a clean break.

Anyone wonder why we only sell OEM? I guarantee that's a china copy...

I was looking at the first picture...where it make the transition from spline to the thicker part of the axle...it looks almost like a casting. I can't see machining marks like the stockers I have. Almost looks like a piece of hot rolled 1018 round rod.

Anyways...live and learn.
