Sure can but if they're the original bushings they're shot, revs are noted for the el cheapo plastic bushings wearing fast. fellow dootalker snowshooter sells a great oil impregnated bronze replacement kit. Its worth the $$$$.
Its the crossmember. The thing that everything on the front end bolts too. A arms, shocks, steering linkage. its what gets damaged whenever the front end takes a good hit. Look behind the exhaust silencer probably bowed in or out and your shocks will not be centered in between the upper a arms. I'm guessing that your shock spring is touching the upper a arm correct?
Around $300 to $450 for the parts. And about 8 hrs labor. Search nun replacement. You will find all the info you may need. And if you don't I just did mine a few months ago and would be happy to help if I can as are many other guys on here. Just ask
Just had a chance to take a good look under the sled, everything looks intact with the nun, from what I can tell. It looks straight and I didn't see any cracks. I am going to bolt the shock and upper A arm on and take it to the mechanic who does work for me when I need it. Let him take a look and hopefully he doesn't find anything either. Have to make sure it is ready to go when the snow flies.
Sorry to hijack but I've got some of the same questions. Last year I came down pretty hard on the front after a jump went wrong and now my left ski is about 2 inches further back than the right. I haven't taken the hood and side panels off yet but nothing visible is obviously bent. My left shock is not touching the a-arm but it's not centered either. Been reading a lot of threads on bent nuns trying to get a really good idea what all to check.
Sometimes its not easy to see. but if you look at the front of your bottom a arms standing to the side of your sled it should form a straight line with the other side a arm. Also steer it lock to lock and see if any thing hits the steering linkage under the pipe. It doesn't take much to move a ski that much. A 1/4" off at the bolt of the a arm can be 2" off down by the ski. Also check your ball joints and look behind the exhaust can for warpage.
