Has anyone found an option to replace these junk SAIR shocks. I have rebuilt all of them already and they are leaking again!! Wondering if someone has found that like polaris ranger shocks fit or something like that? I can’t find where I can search shocks by physical dimensions.

Went for a little ride at night. Best time to have trouble. Was going up a dirt/gravel hill and lost forward motion. Heard a popping/ grinding sound. Looked with a light but couldn't see anything. Could select reverse but same popping/grinding sound. I put the machine in neutral and rolled backwards and turned in a driveway. Put in gear to pull out. Just more popping. Selected 4WD and got the 3-4 miles back home.
Once home had wife put in reverse and give a little gas. Discovered the drive shaft was moving in and out of the transmission bout 1/8 to 1/4 inches but not spinning. I posted to a thread already created by another having a similar issue. Then read the next thread and this guy was having the same issue on a 700.
So not to hijack a thread decided to make my own.
I made a repair request on the axis site for a mobile tech since the closest shop is over 3 hrs away. Will wait for a response before I do any work since this should be covered by the warranty.
Just wondering. If I did have to tackle this myself, is there a easy way to get the driveshaft out without having to take the whole rear diff out?
Below is a diagram. I'll not be able to do anything to the machine until the weekend since I'm working out of town. Then only have Saturdays to work on it then. If I have to work on it. What would be the easiest way to get the driveshaft out? I've got tools and know how to use them. Just need a starting point.
Thanks in advance.
I bought this from an auction not working and when you drive it forward it felt like it was poping out of gear and could hearing bad bearing noise from engine/trans. I knew the bearing noise was coming from trans or clutch so I went ahead and pull it out and apart to see what was going on. the bearing noise seems to be the one way clutch bearing so the clutch and drum are both messed up. is there any way that binding up would make the clutch disconnect or anything? do you know what else would cause that? i heard somewhere that you can just remove the bearing completely and it will just free spin down hill, has anyone done this? thank you so much for your help and advise
We have 2.4 acres of forested mountain property with about 1000' of gravel driveway to plow and maintain. My trailer is a Silverwing SW9f 5'x9' and we would really like to have something that seats 3 people. I looked at Polaris, Yamaha, Can-AM, Kawasaki and so far the only thing that fits the bill is the Polaris Ranger 570 full size.
Just wondering if anyone else has ideas of other options new or used that would fit this? I really like my trailer and it will be great to use behind the UTV also when i get it so i hate to have to get something different.
