Exacty, this happens in almost all sleds after 1o years or so. You can usually tighten them, if not then just replace.Polaris_Parts_MN said:Most likely the loose steering play is coming form worn tie rod ends- the things that look like eyeball sockets. They connect all the steering linkage together.
You have to take the pipe off which is 6 springs and then depending on if its a big block or a small block you chould be able to get some tools down infront of the engine to take out all the rods and replace the ends. But you say it has 3 inches of slop in it that could mean the bolt is loose for the linkage under the engine which is quite hard to get at without taking the engine loose and moving it out of the way.snowmaniac153 said:perfect..thanks for the info...it is a polaris RMK 151 2004... to replace the tie rod ends,,,what is the best way?? from under or from top?? remove exhaust or what??
