dual plunging axles 2014 xp900 ranger

I bought a 2 seasons ago a 4" high lifter for my 2014 polaris 900xp Ranger Browning edition,  post breaking a cv jiont apart on the stock axle. Included in the purchase of the 4 dual plunging axles was offset a-arms for the additional clearance. Upon completion of the initial installation which seemed to be uneventful installation,  I road tested the axles and found a left front outer bearing  or cv noise from my new dual plunge axles. Highlifter could not explain this and sent me a new one as they would not allow me to break the boot to investigate the deficiency without voiding the warranty. The new axle arrived in a timely manner, I exchanged the whole axle assembly and the cv niose continues. Highlifter stated they could not provide any good explanation and here i sit in a position of lack of confidence wondering if i bought the right product. I sent my unit into the shop yesterday for them to diagnosis the axle. I forego likely any wrranty should they break the boot seal but what else can be done??
Hunting season is upon me and i require to have my 4x4 functioning reliably. I rightfully have little confidence in this product and rightdfully have lack of confidence in highlifter at this point to get through this defect.  I called High lifter with no resolve and find myself short on solutions.  I fear to upgrade the tires from stock as the axles will break for sure. My 4x4 is a simple go cart due to this product not performing as it was intended. I dont think Highlifter is a bad product but i do feel there might be some compatability issues being stretched out to meet more sales. I hope this isnt the case but if it is this needs to be corrected. I cant even sell my machine in the state it is. The product has me in a pickle currently and any assistance would be very much appreciated.  Thanks in advance

    Skeggar I hate to hear that your having an issue. Did the shop open up the CV yet? I would make them take pictures every step of the way disassembling the CV. That way if something is found you have proof. Keep us updated.

    Too bad to hear about the issue! How's it now? Compatibility is really something hard to deal with, especially when the manufacturer has not given full details. My buddy had the same problem on his old Honda dirt bike which was hard to look for compatible shocks and brake kit. That's where having a good mechanic friend is an advantage. He's good at measuring and easily identified a compatible shocks he ordered from 4WheelOnline and now he got a good weekend toy.
