Swing arm needs to be stronger


Kinarfi

Recommended Posts

Went to the dunes the other day and had a few hard slams into the dunes and on a few other rides I ended up sitting on one front wheel and the other side rear wheel. I was looking at my rig from the rear and it looked like the right wheel was leaning in, so I took the wheel off, undid the spindle and axle and put a long pipe through the trailing arm where the axle comes through and pried on it until I bent the pipe,1 1/4", then I jacked the Trooper up as high as I could, put the pipe through again and blocked the pipe up under the Trooper with some wood and let the jack down and pushed down on the other end until I bent the pipe again. I put every thing back together again and the wheel looked a lot better for being straight up and down. I did notice that the round tube just inside the lower spindle mount was now dented.

What is the easiest way to strengthen the swing arm?

The easiest way I know is to buy the chrome moly trailing arms from silver bullet only 850.00 and if I had your money I would buy two pairs so you can give me a pair since I'm a poor hillbilly lol !!!

Sounds like a good idea and probably the easy route. I was going to start a help kinarfi buy new equip page because I'm so destitute that I thought everyone would want to send me money, but when my wife fell down and hurt her self while laugh at me, I decided not to, didn't want anyone else hurt. Would you like to be my first contributor? :D

When I poured the concrete floor in my garage I installed two Tie-downs in the concrete floor. These are used in Body Shops for straightening frames and other heavy work. You will have to visit and we will tie your Trooper down and use a jack to straighten the swing arm. My dad was a Body man and I grew up in the buz. That is what I am going to do to mine, both of mine are in neg camber, but not until I install the new shocks in their new location on the swing arm. Both Lenny and I have move the lower shock mount further out toward the wheel to more centralize the impact to the swing arm. That is the real fix! Much cheaper than new a swing arm.

      Does anyone out there have a rear differential for a trooper for sale?
    • By AndySwish33
      Brand new t boss 550. couple of questions. 
       
      1.  Do you need speakers in order to play music ?  Hooked my phone to Bluetooth no sound 
      2.  On screen registration.. it won’t let me fill in the info on the touch screen.  Navigation works but the registration portion does not 
      3.  Is there a data plan you can get or need ?  
       
      thanks everyone

      I have a 2022 Hisun 750 Sector which comes with a locked rear differential. Was wondering if it would be possible to install an unlocking differential.  I see that there are some Hisun made machines that come with the unlocking rear diff, such as Cub Cadet Challenger, some of the Massimos, and probably others. My concern is whether these would be a direct bolt on, using the original axles, drive shaft, and of course matching gear ratio. I've tried to match up part numbers but it seems every brand has their own number system even for parts that I know are identical. If anyone has ever done this swap or has any information about the whether these unlocking rear diffs are comparable to the Sector, I'd appreciate your input.

      Does anyone have a had time starting there utv.
      I have a T-Boss 750 and I have had to put 2 starters in and put heavier wire to the starter but it still has a problem starting. it will turn over and than die before it wil turn over again. could it be that there is to much compression that might cause this problem
       
      Thank you
