Default Well It Happened!!!

Lower left a arm came un glued on my while riding. Ruined basically everything on the left front suspension. Polaris has really dropped the ball on this as it is a glue issue and we all know they have had other "glue" issues which they are fixing IE. driveshafts.. However they are denying ALL a arm issues.. (will get pictures posted tonight of damage)

Been doing a lot of searching and talking with riders. Sounds like it is becoming more common..

We are going to remedy this problem with some Zbroz 39" arms.. They will be here on tuesday hopefully...

I will post up full pics of the install

Just heard of another failure recently as well. That really sucks and Polaris should step up!

I think you're on the right track though by just putting a set of Z Bros. on and being done!

I'm curious if you had glue oozing out of the junction on the side that failed and also on the side that is still attached?

If it wasn't for warranty I think I would drill and rivet before it happened. Sucks.
