U-joints

Postby Wildhorse800 » Wed Jul 27, 2011 5:12 pm

Anyone replace the front u-joint on the rear shaft?

Just wondering if I can get it at NAPA or if i have to get raped at the dealer?

Lube up!

Try online...maybe aftermarket...ie: stronger

I bought my u joints through napa. There pretty easy to do. I don't remember what number it is but if you do a google search you can find it quickly.

Here is the u joint number: Napa 338

Plus the new ones come with zerk fittings. The stock polaris ones don't have them.

Tell me about it! Most likely wouldn't be replacing them if they did.

I am doing all the bushings in the rear and installing zerks on all of them, too.
