View Full Version : Xtra-10 Suspension Issue
10-25-2009, 10:23 AM
Does anyone have any experience with "sagging" Xtra-10 suspensions? The suspension seems fine when it is out of the sled, but when put back in it drops to the bottom.

kinda typical with the xtra-10. i have a 99 indy 500 with the xtra-10 and when i bought it 2 years ago with 2000 miles it didn't sag one bit. now with 7000 miles it sags twice as much. only way to solve is new torsion springs and shocks

you could mess with the limiter straps too but the only way to really fix is with new torsion springs and new shocks

I tried the shocks didn't do much at all, I will look for a new set of torsion springs next. Thanks!

i also recommend stiffer torsion springs than stock. they last longer, i haven't tried them but i've heard stiffer than stock is the way to go

Do you know where a good place to get the stiffer version is or what brand they are? I looked at OEM and the standard are $75 each.

from what i'm seeing, you have to contact them to see what types of torsion springs you want to order

http://www.kenssportspolarisparts.com/pages/parts/viewbybrand/default.aspx if you look on here, they have 3 different sets of torsion springs you can order. i don't know what sled you have but i just picked a 2000 xc 500 because i know it has an xtra-10. they have .347, .359, and .375. .375 is the stiffest.

ok, you have to search under there for your sled the link didn't go to the rear torque arm. once you get your sled, in the upper right part of the webpage, there's different categories to look for parts for your sled. choose the rear torque arm
