Take a good look at the axle splines too... and be sure you torque the dog piss out of it when you put it back on 70-140 Ft pounds (Max it out.)

If he goes with the CC diff he needs a different motor too but, Robbie and I talked about this once.

Cartfixer mentioned an aftermarket upgrade was available on another forum. I asked for the info, he never responded. The hubs are an EZ-Go design flaw. They should be keyed instead of splined, but some engineer decided this was a better plan (cheaper).

That will be my 2011 season upgrade!

But how do they resolve the splined hub issue?

So, you mean they use hardened steel splined hubs with the OE hardened steel splined axle?

Scotty would know better than I do but from what I have been given to understand, yes, they use a hardened steel.
