Im hoping some of you can help me with a problem. On my last few rides I notices the front end on my 11' RZR S LE seemed sloppy. After jacking up the frontend, I found the upper and lower control arms had the afore mentioned slop! Any suggestions on replacement parts and how to keep this from happening again would be greatly appreciated.

RZR's eat arm bushings, ball joints and tie-rod ends. Just get use to it because you will be changing them a lot.

Right. Jack the machine up, Wiggle the wheels then just find the play. Bushings and ball joints wear out pretty fast.. As in 500-1200 miles.. Bearings last 2 to 3 times longer. Also if you don't keep an eye on them pretty good One loose part will take all the other stuff with it. Thats why some people have a lot of trouble.. They will have a bad ball joint or bushing not know it then next thing you know they need to replace everything on that side.. I've done it myself..

Most of the play will be on the inside of the A-Arms where they mount to the frame, if they are worn.

If you have more then 200 miles on it they are worn. I have 1700 miles on mine and I lost count after the 5th time replacing the bushings.
After every 2 or 3 times you have to replace the sleaves also.
These Polaris's were not made to last and they know they have us buy the balls. thatsright

Check your bushing bolts for wear.....The bushings will wear a lot faster if they show wear.

If your not on top of replacing worn a arm bushings, the mountig tabs will soon begin to "egg" and you will have more slop. Spot welding the a-arm nut to the tab helps out a lot but Step washers are the way to go.
