U joints

Well I got a chance to change my front U joints today. Am I glad I did they were almost done. I just happend to be at my buddies shop looking for a brake line and there they were sitting on the shelf. So I bought them locally instead of waiting for an order. He gave me both for 30 bucks and there grease able. Also when I was under the floor I found my oil leak. It was the return hose from the cooler. The clamp was so loose I could pull the hose off by hand. Also found one of my snorkel tubes had collapsed. I reinforced it with a metal ring on the inside to stope it from crushing. Not as hard as I thought it was going to be to change them.

Sounds like you took care of some things. Nice work. Makes you wonder if Arctic Cat ever tightened that clamp at the factory?

2009 Prowler XTZ 1000 with a few modifications. Needs paint & powder coating.

Great catch, save you some down trail time. What year and model machine? How many miles do you have on it? What method did you use to change them?

Sorry for al the questions but I wan to use this thread in the FAQ tab under drive trail for member help.

Thanks
Seth
