Were the others just loose or did they really need full replacement? I'd be totally shocked if those few miles would necessitate tie rods already. Hell, my 2001 Honda Rancher with ~8500 miles has factory suspension still intact.

The tie rods themselves weren't bad, just the inner ends were loose. The outer ends were fine. The OEM rods are 11mm. The new rods are 12mm for the heavier tie rod ends. As far as the A arm bushings, it was the lower arms mainly on right side. I ordered a complete set of new delron bushings, however they won't get installed till a later date. I went ahead and replace the worn ones with OEMs to get it back ridable sooner. The new OEMs were tighter but still have a little play. I am changing to a little heavier grease in the future.

EDITED TO ADD

Just found an upgrade kit from a company here in Utah. Here is a link to the parts I ordered in case anyone else is interested.


https://www.ebay.com/itm/352138047139

Got them installed, they are a lot more beefy than stock. Time will tell how they hold up.

Any feedback on how this kit has held up?

Well, it's kind of coincidental I was doing maintenance on the machine last night. The inner joints were loose. I have just over 4k on the odo now. So I have to say the new rod ends are no better than the OEMs. Don't know what brand to try next

Well thatís unfortunate. Sorry to hear it. Super ATV has ball joints but Iím not sure on tie rods. Maybe worth a call?

I called American Star racing today and discussed the wear issue with the tie rods I purchase in Oct. They said depending on riding condition the tie rod end could wear out faster than normal. Kind of a generic answer, but I agree. I do ride very aggressively and in very rocky conditions most the time.

That said, the American Star folk are sending a new set of their racing tie rods to try. GREAT customer service!!! Below is a link to what they are sending.

I truly think as long as I ride like I do and where I do, I will be replacing the tie rod ends, a-arm bushings and wheel bearings every six months or so. The price of having fun.
