Default xtra 10

So I did some searching and couldn't find a direct answer I was looking for. I know I got some other things going on with the sled right now but I was wondering what all I needed for the full xtra 10 set-up.

I have a rear skid right now. Is that all I need for the rear?

For the front do I need everything?

Tie rods, trailing arms (I know I need these), shocks & springs (pretty sure I need these), and a-arms?

If someone who has done the swap before could make a list that would be great. That way when I start doing it I am not missing anything. I plan on doing this when the motor is out to make life easier. Also if anyone has any of this for sale let me know. Thanks.

for the rear you will also need to move your drop bracket(if yours has it) or get a drop bracket.

Front:

Trailing arms
Sway bar
sway bar mounts
sway bar slides
Radius rods
tie rods
Shocks/springs
spindles are helpful, but old ones will work (xtra spindles have a grease zirc at ski and an extra inch collar at base of spindle)


need the swaybar and mounting parts because stance changes and went to larger thickness bar for Xtra.

A-arms are for newer model without trailing arms.

hope this helps you will enjoy the change, I would also upgrade to the largest lug track you can run at the same time if you money allows.

Holy shit. I must have been retarded last night when I was looking. I did not even see that thread Polaris Rich.

Heres another question though. If I upgrade to plastic ski's, what would I buy ones for?

A Polaris, lol. I believe they're all the same mounting saddle for like 30 years.

Polaris saddles. When going from Steel to plastic depending on brand of plastic and style of saddle you will lose up to an 1" - 1 1/2" of height at ski.
