I replaced the drivers side tie rod end when I first got the XP 900 from Brownboy, with original Polaris part. It has 3 or 4 weekend rides on it now. It is shot again. Maybe due to me hitting a tree (after a root slid me into it) at a good speed. Just not sure if it is that or is it another junk part Polaris sells.

Question-I just want to know what some of you are having luck with other than Polaris?

Gimpy,

After wasting many tie rod ends (yeah, trees sliding into me, big boulders too...hehe) I went with heim joints.

At first I thought they were the shit. The cure all... but after time, even after I red loctited the bolts, they would come loose to the point that a tie rod dropped into the wheel and poked a hole.

I gave up on them and back to regular tie rod ends.

If you go with the heim joint way, I hope you have better luck than I did.


Mark

I did find out it was the nut that came loose.  I was ready to put Super Daves on after they came in the mail yesterday.  I put red lock tight on the bolt.  Hope that will hold it.

Les , heim joints are better , but on the stock ones. there just dry joints.
if you take a grease needle and go under the boot and shoot a little grease
in them , they will last a pretty long time.... allright

Thanks Chris. Not sure if I have a grease needle in my supplies. Can you get it at NAPA?

These are the ones I have and they have taken a beating. No boots over the heim just give them a shot of wd after each wash and before a ride.
I have around 1500 miles on them and still like new.
