I still have yet to take my axles apart, I suspect there may be something wrong with them.From Highlifter - I got the pictures and forwarded them on to our research guys. From what I saw and what they told me everything looked to be installed correctly. We have sold thousands of the kits over the years and never had a problem like this. My recommendation would be; If you think that the lift will harm your machine, remove it. We can not refund your money because the kit has been installed.
