i couldn't find any good aftermarket options. so i just replaced with stock ones. and re-installed my skid plates. if you realy have 102,000 miles on your atv im really impressed!! and i would not try and reuse the bushings like it did. mine has about 1000 miles on it and they looked fine so i reused them. i did have friend with a press get them out of the old a arms so if you don't have a press then just buy new a arms with new bushings already installed.

Pretty funny. A post from Kiev.....asking about this...but notice. My "06 4x4. 102k miles." 102,000 miles on an ATV?? Dave noticed it.....kudos. ROFL.

I do check my A-arms before winter though. Always a good idea.
