CV came apart: Inner race pops out with axle attached

So I've got a couple axles that are doing this. They are together like normal but then can push the inner race through while together. This seems wrong, I thought the cage is supposed to keep the inner race and bearings in. It doesn't take a tremendous amount of force to cause this to happen. The other side seems to not want to happen though.
One broke like this under acceleration and the other broke on the bench like pictured below.



See Pictures:




These are Cardone Select axles.

85/2 NA with alum arms.

The machining/balls look a bit larger than GNK/Lobro units.

Hmm, well I don't have those to compare to. But the inner race just seems to pop through the center of the cage. I'm under the impression this should be impossible with the boot on and axle in place.

Yeah... I just want to know that if I got proper axles that this should not happen or if it's a normal thing? It doesn't seem normal. From everything I've read the inner race should have to be 90º to get through the ball cage like that.

Not a normal thing.

I just pulled out my original OEM CV joints I had in a box, and they are assembled as shown in your first photo, so the races are indexed correctly (don't think they would go together if they weren't anyway).

The inner and/or outer race must be really worn out, or your balls are too small.

Sorry, was that a "microaggression"?

The millennial in me is offended deeply by your triggering

Thanks for the help. I'm sending them back. Going to get some FEQ ones from Ian.

Cardone Select is brand new Chinese

Cardone re-man is refurbished OE

I have (2) brand new GKN Joints if you are interested

Where did you buy them from? Should have no problem getting them warrantied,

I wonder if Cardone mixed up the Turbo and, for example, the S one???

there used-to-be a company in Knoxville tn that rebuild CVs by machining for larger balls. they moved to Nashville then went poof.

lobro/gnk every 80,000 miles seems like it is cheaper in the long run compared to perpetual replacement of cheaper yet inferior products.

One more reason to stay away from inferior Chinese-made crap.
