Broken Half shaft

Well I broke my first part on my 2010 Camaro. My car is all stock but managed to break the right side half shaft. Has anyone else broken one ?
Also, Posi doesn't seem to hold well. I would have expected the car to be able to move with one broken half shaft.

Broken axles are very common in this car. The type of posi this car has needs to have some load or traction from one wheel for the other to move. That's why your dead in the water with a broken axle. If you had a locker then you would be able to move baring that nothing was causing a bind.

M6 owners have broken alot of axles. Have not heard of a A6 owner breaking on yet. I think it is the shock to the drivetrain of dropping the clutch that is making them finally snap.

Yep, lots of people have broken both the axles and cv joints with not much more then stock power.
We have 2 versions of axles available, our 4340 axles and our 300m axles.
Give me or one of our dealers a call or check out our web site for some great deals.

Thanks
Chris

From the outside, My failure looks the same. Wasn't exactly prepared to spend 1500-1800 bucks on upgraded axles.

I was doing a 1-2 powershift. I have had this at the track earlier this year and would say that the track experience with the wheel hop was much more abusive then my powershift.

I blew the cv joint on my Hendrix axels hitting a pot hole I think. Sent them back to Hendrix and they sent me new one's in no time!! Great company! I drive my car very hard and haven't had a problem since.

Here are a couple of videos to show the type of stress that stock components have. The second video is to show how much deflection was removed from the axle with upgraded trailing arms and toe links.

sorry to revive an old thread, but I think I might have broken one of my half shafts today. I experienced lots of wheel hop followed by lots of knocking. My question is do lowering springs have ANYTHING to do related to this type of problem? I am afraid my dealer will try to blame it on my springs to avoid warranty....

the angle the axle sits at does make a difference. However, since many people have broken theirs already they may look more favorably at warranting the parts. You could however put factory parts back on then bring it/tow it in.
