Question sportsman. 570 balljoints and wheelbearings

what is the best brand (meaning longest lasting) wheel bearings I can put in my sportsman 570. 1400 miles on originals and they are absolutley shot. my front ball joints could use replacement too, so I have the same question. what are the longest lasting ball joints regardless of price, ide rather spend the extra money for em to last longer.

For ball-joints I like OEM. I have had the best experience with them. Wheel bearings doesn't seem to matter. Quadboss, OEM, EPI, Allballs, Boss bearing are all relatively the same in my experience. The key to the wheel bearings is the use of a bearing greaser!!!

do I need to press the ball joints with a press or can I just use a standard ball joint tool do you know?

If you can find them for you machine the Frap brand ball joints will way outlast the Polaris ones, price is around the same too.

If I get 1,000 miles out of a ball-joint I'd be beyond pleased. These EPI's lasted around 700 miles.

As for installing them I've pressed them in if I wasn't replacing the wheel bearing. Since you are I would heat the strut and freeze the ball-joint and it should slide right in. If not have the right sized socket and a persuader ready to give it a little help.

I truly think its how you ride and where you ride that effects the life of the ball joints and bearings. You say you would be happy to get a 1,000 miles out of a set, I have a 16' sportsman 570 Touring which is a heavy machine and I ride some pretty rough and rocky powerline trails here in Arizona. I have 875 miles on this quad and my entire suspension looks and rides just like the day I bought it. But....I do not ride in creeks, river beds and mud. Just dust is my enemy. I have a 2002 Trail boss 325 that rides these same trails and I am just now having to replace the ball joints. Although this quad has no speedometer, I would bet this quad has 5000+ miles on it.
