Rear passenger wheel bowed inward

Hey guys, new to the rzr life. I’ve got a 19’ xp4 turbo. In need of opinions. Took the rzr out last night, got up this morning to pull it out to wash, and noticed the passenger rear wheel is bowed in at the top and front. Driver rear looks fine to me. Don’t know if y’all can tell in the picture but figured I’d post. Everything is stock btw. Any help is appreciated. Also, I have checked everything from, bearings, hub, radius rods, trailing arms, axles, everything and everything seems fine.

Itís normal. I thought the same thing after my daughter put ours on itís side. I checked everything and couldnít find anything. So I went to the dealer and looked at new ones and they looked the same.

Re: Rear passenger wheel bowed inward

You need to measure camber at the loaded ride height...not unloaded. Here is a quote from a post back in 2012 ...

As for adjusting camber it relates a bit differently on offroad vehicles than onroad vehicles due to the suspension travel and the amount of squat under acceleration. Camber will increase negative as suspension compresses from stationary ride height and will increase positive on suspension rebound. It would be best to have some positive camber at stationary ride height, under accelleration you will gain negative camber, too much static camber and you will have less tire contact surface area under hard acceleration and cause slip. Some positive static camber will allow it to go negative under acceleration and during cornering. Also you can adjust the lower arm to gain negative camber and some extra track width or adjust upper arm to gain negative and keep track width the same. Adjusting both upper and lower arms will increase track width and also add some toe in on the rear wheel's and will gain you some straight line stability. But you need to make small adjustments at a time and be sure each side is equal. If you don't really know what you are doing then you can really screw yourself.

Based on the angle of the radius rods in the picture everything looks normal to me, but it's hard to tell with a picture. Take some measurements side to side and see if they are different.

Re: Rear passenger wheel bowed inward

i kept thinking mine looked different than normal and so i finally checked it out and found that one of the ends of the radius rod had came apart, basically, where the inner "ball" had came out of the end of the radius rod. the boot had it covered up pretty well so i didn't notice it at first.

I had this happen to me on my XP1K. It ended up being a slightly twisted Trailing Arm.
