Have a 2015 sportsman 570SP and have noticed my front shock bushings have a bit of movement. Took them out and them seemed to fit pretty snug the bolt seems to be a bit too small for the mounting hole in the control arm. But however my issue it getting shock bushings!? Mine are a 3 piece unit and polaris says they cant sell me a bushing but a whole shock? My question is someone out there has to have replaced theirs how and what did you use? I was pondering the idea of maybe some energy suspension ones if i can size them up right.

I found a guy on ebay that sells bushings for the shocks. My only concern is they eliminate the metal sleeve. Not sure how that's going to work but for 25 bucks for all 4 I'm willing to give them a try. They should be here today. I'll let you know how they work.

Try DK Off-road. Canadian company and they also offer a lifetime warranty.

I put a set of these bushings in my 850 at the end of January. Since then, I’ve put about 11 hours and 120 miles on it and they are holding up great, much better than I can say for the stock crap it came with. They are a tight press fit so if you don’t have a press, a dead blow hammer and couple blocks of wood will make the job easy.
