Rear suspension arm and hub povot points

Recommended Posts

I recently removed my rear trailing arm to check the pivot points. As you all know, they not serviceable without removal. Checking mine, I found one of the four total was about to get dry. Even a little surface rust was developing on the surface as seen in the picture attacked. The joint is fairly well designed but the caps on the ends with internal rubber seals doesn't seal very good. I added greese fittings to eliminate the servicing problem and to be able to pump fresh greese to them on a regular basis. If you add the fittings, be sure to put them as far around the bearing tube towards the rear as possible. If you later modify your suspension to get the 14 1/2" of travel, then the fitting will miss the bracket the arm pivots on when the suspension is at full compression.

While at it, I also added greese fittings to the rear axel hubs. This also is shown in an included picture. Just looking them and seeing the greese squeezing out the sides a little makes me feel a lot better about things.

I sujest everyone check these pivot points. Greese fittings can be purchased at your local auto supply. I would use the small ones shown in the rear axle hub picture rather than the larger ones I used on the arms.

      Does anyone out there have a rear differential for a trooper for sale?

      I've had a battery failure and need one replacement.  The local distributor told me it might take up to four weeks to get one.  I'd like to order one in sooner than that if possible.  Any help would be appreciated.

      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.

      I realize that many of you do not have diesel machines.  For those that do, this is for you:
      Just wanted to post my experience this past week.  Here in Texas, we had pretty good dip in temps.  For 4 days it did not get above 25.  At night, it was single digits or close to it.  I always put Sta-Bil fuel stabilizer in the storage tank (30 gallon).  And up until this tank I was using Power Service (white bottle) for anti-gel.  Never had an issue.
      This tank, however, I switched to Stabil All season (anti gel).  It is supposed to good down to -40.  Zap.  That is a big fat lie.  I put in twice the amount called for in the instructions.  Result was less than optimal.  I drove the SxS 100 feet (to go get the mail) and it died.  I looked at the fuel bowl and it was a cloudy, wax substance.  So, the Stabil did not work.  That said, I'm not sure that I ever tested the Power Service in the same manner.  So I am not saying that one is better than the other.
      What are your experiences?  Are these products inferior?  What do you folks in the northern states / Canada use?  Am I missing something?
