I definitely agree it is the spline, I noticed the play on the inner tie rod witch is unusual to wear before the outers. I read the steering play thread and I'll try the lock tight trick

When my OEM set went bad it was within the warranty period but the dealer claimed it was normal wear and tear and was not covered. Same thing with my fuel pump, it started crapping out during the warranty period also. They wouldn't fix it either. Probably a good thing because they would have put a junk Polaris one back in. I stuck an aftermarket pump in and haven't had any issues after thousands of miles. RANT OVER

Yes I have a 2018Sportsman 1000XP seen the tie rod loose for day one. I thinking about trying to put grease in them with a grease needle.
