How long is the stock axle shaft minus the CV joints on a pilot?
Thank you

I asked the same thing but never got a response

I know both ATVR and 4x4Tuff's Long Travel Axles are 17.75"

But I would also like to know what the Stock FL400 axles length is

Very Nice but not quite what I was looking for   :P

I'd say to get an exact measurement you'd need to remove the outter CV Joint
Now don't go listening to what the service manual says about the outter not being serviceable
How do you think us LT guys get the longer axles in our machines   :shock:

We can figure out faily close what the length is from your photos - THANKS

I really didn't need an exact length, I was only doing some crazy thinking and wanted to know the approx difference...

My guess is they are 15.5"

crazy thinking = turning basket case FL400 into a two seater...

Thanks for the info
Dennis

That's why I didn't bother removing the outter CV  :P  :P
