Steering shaft ujoint

Has anyone changed this tiny little ujoint? I noticed there is all kinds of play in the joint. I wanted to change it and didn't know if anyone ever cross-referenced it or if the whole shaft has to be replaced. Thanks.

Hope I don't have to spend this for a ujoint!!

Re: Steering shaft ujoint

Try this website. Flamingriver.com you can get a universal joint for about $50 and you just cut the steering shaft were the old joint is an adapt the new universal to it an weld it up. I did that for my truck, but they sell universals in all different dimensions.

Are you sure your play in in the joint and not in the steering rack or the steering wheel itself? I would check closely before just throwing parts at it.

The rack is a brand new rackzilla and is tight. Yes the steering wheel has some play in it also, but I can put my hands on the shaft and move that joint all over. The steering wheel I know I can get parts for to tighten up, but that joint is so small I dint know if I can find it anywhere. I ride the rzr almost everyday so I was hoping to have the parts all ready to fix it when I get it apart.

Re: Steering shaft ujoint

Hmmm, is it actually the joint or is it the roll pin that fixes the driveshaft to the front axle input shaft?

The front joint on the driveshaft sees so little movement its hard to believe it would "wear out". The roll pin on the other hand is where movement and wear can occur.

Also with Polaris AWD, even a heavily used RZR probably doesn't accrue much time with the front axle being driven. Since the rear wheels have to spin first, out on mountain trails, dirt roads to and from trailheads and doing the trails in Moab...I would be amazed to know how much time the front axle was really engaged. Something tells me that in a week of Moab it might be for a few minutes at best.

Awesome machine!!

Its not the prop shaft. I recently changed those joints front and rear. It's the steering shaft. I'll check into flaming river.

Lots of places sell them. Check dans performance parts. Weld on ujoints are real common for sandrails. Dans has great prices.
