 Removing Ball Joints on a Polaris Sportsman

PostSubject: Removing Ball Joints on a Polaris Sportsman   Mon Mar 29, 2010 10:37 pm

If you ever have to do this here is a good tip. After removing the plate on the bottom that holds the ball joint in begin to pump grease in the grease fitting. If the grease doesn't come out of the joint the pressure will push the ball joint right out. Works like a champ.

If that doesn't work then you need to revert to the method of sticking a socket in between nut and housing and tightening it until it pulls the joint out. This is an easy way also, but sometimes hard to find the right peice of metal/socket to use.

If you just heat up the strut they will just fall out or tap the side and they will come right out . If they are wore real bad the greese will come right around the joint. Very Happy

Yeah, I had that problem on one. Grease just came right out. I ended up heating it up and prying it out. with a pickle fork.
