    ball joints

    my 800 only has 450 kms and my bottom and top ball joints are sloppy and worn out already obvious junk joints. is there any ball joints that will work instead of the factory ones, mabye off a rzr or rhino??

    If i was going to try anything i would get a ball joint for a rhino. Never tried but it would be a close bet

    sold a few, mainly due to the fact the boots rip and ruin the joint. were your boots cracked and junk?

    it all depends on your riding conditions. it will dry out and ruin the joint. snow, water, mud whatever the case it. not sure about yours but its just what i've noticed.

    let us know what you find out on the new ones.
