04 Ranger 500 6x6 Replacement Cargo Gas Springs


Recommended Posts

New Owner of 04 Ranger 500 6x6. Our cargo box with a spare tire in it is very difficult to lift to the dump position. Are the gas springs designed to allow a person of average strength to dump a 1000# load? My wife and I are both 64 yr/s old and pretty strong. I suspect that the gas springs on the used machine we bought need replacing. I measured the stroke of the gas spring at 8", colapased pin to pin @ 12'' and full extended pin to pin @ 20". Does anyone know what the force rating of the Polaris gas springs and whether they are designed to allow easy dumping or the maximum rated 1000# load? I would love to replace these with a higer quality stainless steel gas spring with more force if possible. Any replacement recomendations?
