Front/ rear driveshaft removal
I'm in the early stages of replacing my u joints on my 2003 sportsman 700. I have a few questions I cant seem to find the answers too.
I have the front drive shaft off, but cant remove it from the machine. It's hitting the bottom of the motor. Do I need to unbolt the motor so I can lift it up a little so the shaft clears?
The rear shaft is loose. I can slide it back and forth. Do I have to unbolt the rear diff in order to pull it out or is there a trick?
My machine has a build date of 06/06/02. According to the Polaris web site, the front and rear u joints are different. Can anyone confirm this. I was hoping to go to NAPA and get 4 of the same u joints #338
