For all you guys that have/had a RZR, what have you found to be the best ball joint? Both of the lowers are toast on my Jagged X so I am probably going to replace all 4 while I have it apart. I have seen a lot of great reviews on RCV ball joints and they have a lifetime warranty but for ~$400 for all 4 they better have a lifetime warranty. $400 is more than half of what a set of arched a-arms with heim joints cost.
Wheel bearing recommendations would also be appreciated. I tried several different brands back when I had my Grizzly and rode a lot more than I do now. I came to the conclusion that all brands were similar and none of them would last all that long.
Any ball joints are ok. I usually purchased All Balls brand.
On bearings only Polaris brand. There are not any good off-brand since they are an odd size. Can’t buy SKF , National or other quality brands for Rzr bearings. Get you a bearing packer for those - it really does increase life.
I know the post is several months old but I was just going to add that I drilled and tapped my rzr balljoints for grease fittings. If the car is on stands with the suspension unloaded I can usually get two pumps of grease in. Wait for a hr or so and I can get another couple pumps in there. That's the oem ball joints, I do have a eBay special on the lower left. That joint will take all the grease you care to pump. The dust boot fit poorly so I safety wired it tight at the top and now it actually hold the grease in. I do these and my wheel bearings after every ride and so far things are holding up great. Had I installed the grease fittings from the start then the cheap eBay joint wouldn't have ever been needed. I also have a grease fitting in my steering rack along with a larger delrin bushing/steering stop I made.
I have 3,100 miles on my 900S with all original ball joints, tie rod ends, bushings, and bearings with minimal to no wear. I did pack my bearings with a grease packer at about a 1000 miles and it pushed out water and took over a dozen pumps per bearing. I will go ahead and replace my bearing later this spring.
